Ten random things: February 25

Ten individuals represented in the National Statuary Hall Collection:

  1. Jabez L. M. Curry (Ala.)
  2. William Henry Harrison Beadle (S.D.)
  3. Wade Hampton (S.C.)
  4. J. Sterling Morton (Neb.)
  5. John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg (Pa.)
  6. John McLoughlin (Ore.)
  7. Roger Sherman (Conn.)
  8. James Harlan (Iowa)
  9. William Jennings Bryan (Neb.)
  10. Sakakawea (N.D.)

The National Statuary Hall Collection in the United States Capitol is composed of 100 statues donated by individual states to honor persons notable in their history. Originally, the entire collection was housed in the old House of Representatives Chamber, but eventually it grew too large to be contained in one room, so it was scattered throughout the Capitol.
