The National Statuary Hall Collection on display throughout the U.S. Capitol building features statues of notable persons representing all fifty states. Each state selects and donates two statues, sometimes replacing a previous monument with a new honoree.

The collection includes:

  • An Oklahoman who said:
    “America has the best politicians money can buy.”
    “Congress is so strange; a man gets up to speak and says nothing, nobody listens, and then everybody disagrees.”
    “The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets.”
    “There’s no trick to being a humorist when you have the entire government working for you.”
