We started the day heading off to see Ford's Theater and visit the home were Lincoln died. It was really neat sitting in the actual theater, seeing the spot where Lincoln was killed and hearing the story. After that, we decided to walk around the Smithsonian for a little bit before our tour of the Capital. One of Senator Hatch's intern took Casey and I on a tour of the Capital. It is a really beautiful building and we were also able to sit in and hear the Senate discussing some issues. One thing I thought was interesting is that every state has a statue of someone who has made a strong impact on our state. Of course Brigham Young was one as well as Philo T. Farnsworth, who had invented the TV...apparently he was from Utah.
