THE NATIONAL STATUARY HALL IN THE CAPITOL From 1856 to 1860 some of the most famous deadlocks and parliamentary battles in the history ofthe world's legislatures took place inthis hall, which was then the meeting place of the House. Today it is peopled by memorials of the Statestotheir favorite sons. Each State fur nishes statues, in marble or bronze, of the two deceased citizens who have been, in its judgment, most illustrious and most worthy of national commemoration. The only woman who has been thus honored is Frances E. Willard, the founder of the World's Woman's Christian Temperance Union.
