This Day in History: 1793 – George Washington lays the cornerstone to the United States Capitol building, the home of the legislative branch of the American government.

Fact of the Day:  The Capitol building in Washington, DC has been burned (in the War of 1812), used as a barracks and hospital (during the Civil War), and undergone three major expansions to accommodate the growing number of congressmen.  Today, it is visited by five million people per year, has 540 rooms, and covers about four acres of land.

Strange, but True:  There are 189 things in the United States named after George Washington: one state; seven mountains; eight streams; ten lakes; 33 counties; nine colleges; and 121 towns and villages.
