Milling Around the Virginia State Capitol

The Virginia State Capitol, which Thomas Jefferson designed with Charles-Louis Clérisseau, was the first Roman Revival building in America and the first American public building in the form of a classic temple.  The building was the site of significant events in American history while it was the Virginia State Capitol and in its role as the Capitol of the Confederate States of America from 1861 to 1865.

With the golden rays of the setting sun lighting up the Capitol in Richmond, people mill around to enjoy the evening.
