The Last Gasp of the Civil War

This picture, above, shows US troops bivouacked on the cold stone floor of the U.S. Capitol. weapons loaded and nearby.  

Over 20,000 national guard troops have been detailed to Washington for the week ahead to supplement local D.C. Police, Capitol Police, Secret Service, the FBI, and (no doubt) special forces.

The plaque on the wall at right is a reminder of the last time troops bivouacked at the Capitol, back in 1861.
