150th Anniversary of the U.S. Capitol Dome
Monday marked the 150th anniversary of the completion of the U.S. Capitol Dome. Click here to watch a great 60 Minutes segment about the Dome’s architecture, construction, and history. Also, if you are planning a visit to DC, please contact my office for a staff-led tour of the U.S. Capitol and tickets to visit the gallery.
Tuesday marked the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. On that day in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. His speech lasted only a few minutes, but his words endure. Read more on my statement and President Lincoln’s address on the Cotton Blog.

I want to congratulate them on this important milestone! I look forward to hearing about their continued success and the important contributions they make to the community.
