A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL

In 1791, President Washington chose the land, now the District of Columbia, as the nation’s capital. Pierre Charles L'Enfant, a French engineer, was charged to plan the new city of Washington. L'Enfant's eye was keen, for he envisioned the U.S. Capitol Building upon the brow of what was then called Jenkins' Hill -- a site that in L'Enfant's words, "A pedestal waiting for a monument." The Capitol Building, itself, was designed by Dr. William Thornton, a Scottish-trained physician. The Capitol’s length, north to south, is 751 feet 4 inches; width is 350 feet; height to the top of the Statue of Freedom is 288 feet; the dome is an elegant articulation of 8,909,200 pounds of cast iron!

Standing atop Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., construction of the U.S. Capitol Building began in 1793, and is the seat of the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government -- the Congress of the United States. On September 18, 1793, President Washington laid the cornerstone of the Capitol building-- an exemplar 19th-century neoclassical architecture that evokes the principles and ideals guiding the Founding Fathers as they developed the new republic. Congress first met in the Capitol Building on November 17, 1800

The United States Capitol building is symbolically and architecturally one of the most important architectures not only in America but also in the world. Often shown as a symbol of power, influence, authority, and gravity in times of national crises as the background of news broadcasts -- the United States Capitol building is synonymous with the legislative pulse of America. The Senate and the House of Representatives have forged the laws of our Nation in the great halls, corridors, and private rooms of the Capitol Building for more than two centuries. The Capitol building since 1793 was built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored, and stands as an architectural monument of freedom and democracy for America.

Dimensions: 4.5" x 1.5" x 2" (to peak of dome)

THE ROOMS OF THE WHITE HOUSE COLLECTION

This "Rooms Collection" is an Ongoing Series Based on White House Design History with New Rooms Presently in Design and the Lincoln Bedroom Coming Soon!

The White House Rooms available include the Oval Office, the State Dining Room, the Blue Room, the Green Room, the Red Room, and the East Room with more rooms coming soon! Accurate and 3-D Interior View of White House Rooms. The Oval Office: Architect Nathan C. Wyeth at the order of President William Howard Taft designed the office in 1909. Named for its distinctive oval shape, the Oval Office is part of the complex of offices that make up the West Wing of the White House. The Blue Room: Is located in the center of the State Floor of the White House. The President uses the Blue Room to receive many of his guests, from foreign heads of state to members of Congress. State Dining Room: The State Dining Room, which now seats as many as 140 guests, was originally much smaller and served at various times as a drawing room, office, and Cabinet Room. Not until the Andrew Jackson administration was it called the "State Dining Room," although previous Presidents had used it for formal dinners. The Red Room: The Red Room traditionally has served as a parlor or sitting room; recent Presidents have had small dinner parties here. During the Madison administration, the room became Dolley Madison's famous salon. Yellow dominated the color scheme until 1845, when President and Mrs. Polk furnished the room with a dark crimson French Antique style suite and a ruby carpet. Soon the "Washington Parlor" became the "Red Room." The Green Room: James Hoban, the original architect of the President's House, intended that the space now called the "Green Room" be used as a "Common Dining Room." Charles McKim renovated the White House for President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902. In the Green Room, the architect covered the walls in green velvet and relocated a white marble mantle from the State Dining Room. Remarkable works of art grace the Green Room walls. The East Room: Ascending from the Ground Floor Corridor, a marble stairway leads the White House visitor to the state floor level. Off the landing to the right is the East Room. The largest of the state rooms, it was designed by James Hoban and George Washington to be a "Public Audience Room."

From the White House Gift Shop: The first detailed history of the White House decorative arts collection, The White House: Its Historic Furnishings and First Families by Betty C. Monkman with photography by Bruce White, is now in its third printing. The book, initially published in November 2000 by Abbeville Press, has enjoyed singular success amongst decorative arts lovers, history enthusiasts, scholars and casual readers alike. For 200 years, the White House has served as the residence of our nation’s president and his family. Every chief executive except George Washington has lived there, but our first president left his mark on it as well, by selecting the site and approving its design. John and Abigail Adams were the first residents, and each family ever since has been encouraged, through congressional and private funds, to make it a comfortable home and to acquire the necessities for carrying out the other role of the White House as a place of state ceremony and as the office of the President. The White House collection of furniture, silver, glass, porcelain and textiles is rich with historical associations and reflects their use in a house that has served as the home of presidents and their families for 200 years. It is also a well-documented collection with bills of sale dating to its first occupants and photographic records since the 1870s. Official documents, letters and diaries inform us about the objects in the White House in 1801 when John and Abigail Adams departed and Thomas Jefferson took office, as well as items which were sold when Theodore Roosevelt swept away the 19th century interiors in 1902. Documents also reveal the reasons James Monroe ordered objects from France in 1814 and the history of the French silver bought by Andrew Jackson in 1833 from the estate of a former Russian minister to the United States. A speech by a Congressman in 1840 is evidence of how White House furnishings were the focus of anti-Van Buren forces during the 1840 presidential campaign. “The objects in the house resonate with meaning, imparting inspiration and a glimpse into past presidential lives and significant White House events for each new family,” says author Betty Monkman, curator of the White House. The White House: Its Historic Furnishings and First Families features a forward by First Ladies Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, and Hillary Clinton. The introduction is written by Wendell Garrett. This handsome book will appeal to anyone interested in the decorative arts, biographies, history, and Americana. Betty C. Monkman has worked in the White House curator’s office since 1967, first as museum registrar, then associate curator, and since 1997 as curator. She planned and curated the first exhibition on the White House in 1992 and continues to work closely on other exhibits at the White House Visitor Center. She has written a number of articles on the White House decorative arts and has lectured throughout the country. Bruce White specializes in the photography of works of art and architecture and has been engaged by some of the country’s leading cultural institutions. He was formerly a staff photographer at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The New York Police Department Counter Terrorism Task Force and other Units of the NYPD often work closely with the U.S. Secret Service to assure security for the President.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD or NYCPD), officially the City of New York Police Department, was established in 1845, and is the largest municipal police force in the United States, having primary responsibilities in law enforcement and investigation within the five boroughs of New York City. The NYPD is one of the oldest police departments established in the United States; tracing its roots back to the first Dutch eight man night watch in 1625, when New York City was New Amsterdam.

The NYPD has a broad array of specialized services, including the Emergency Service Unit, K-9, harbor patrol, air support, bomb disposal, counter-terrorism, criminal intelligence, anti-gang, anti-organized crime, narcotics, public transportation and public housing; The New York City Transit Police and New York City Housing Authority Police Department were fully integrated into the NYPD in 1995. According to the department, its mission is to "enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear, and provide for a safe environment."

2014 White House Architecture Ornament

THE WASHINGTON D.C. ARCHITECTURE COLLECTION

Anthony Giannini, USAFR, Design Series

The WASHINGTON D.C. ARCHITECTURE ornament for 2014 is The White House. Exquisitely and entirely finished in brilliant 24KT gold on specially treated premium brass, the 1st annual National Architecture ornament and model is three-dimensional and meticulously handcrafted to museum quality by American ornament masters in Rhode Island, USA. Each year, based on architectural and symbolic concepts by Anthony Giannini, the White House Gift Shop creates a new National Architecture ornament and model to commemorate great American architects and architectural symbols of America.

By supporter requests, we will concept, create, and make a new heirloom piece every three to four months for the National Architecture Collection -- collected, gifted, and traded worldwide by discerning collectors, diplomats, patriotic citizens, heads-of-states, and ministers of many countries.

During November, 2014, we will release the 4th heirloom architecture in the collection: THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT soon followed by the 5th piece – The Washington Cathedral – the spiritual center for many American Presidents. This exciting new National Architecture collection of the White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 by permanent order of President Harry S. Truman is endless -- for we will add all significant American architecture of politically symbolic importance not only in Washington D.C. but also across America.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WHITE HOUSE

The White House is the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States. Located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. It has been the residence of every U.S. president since John Adams in 1800 and is the symbolic center of democracy and freedom not only in America but for many countries yet struggling for freedom from tyranny and oppression.

Designed by Irish-born James Hoban, Neoclassical architecture of the White House was built between 1792 and 1800 of white-painted Aquia Creek sandstone. When Thomas Jefferson moved into the White House in 1801, he, along with architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, expanded the House outward, thus creating two colonnades meant to conceal storage and stables.

In 1814, during the War of 1812, the White House was set ablaze by the British Army in what is now called the Burning of Washington, destroying the interior and charring much of the exterior. Almost immediately, reconstruction began and President James Monroe moved into the partially restored Executive Residence in October 1817. Rebuilding continued with the addition of the South Portico in 1824 and the North Portico in 1829.

In 1901, President Theodore Roosevelt relocated all work offices consequent of overcrowding to the newly constructed West Wing in 1901. In 1909, eight years later, President William Howard Taft expanded the West Wing and created the first Oval Office which was eventually moved as operations expanded. The third-floor attic was converted to living quarters in 1927 by augmenting the existing hip roof with long shed dormers. A newly constructed East Wing was used as a reception area for social events, and President Thomas Jefferson's colonnades connected the new wings. In 1946, President H. S. Truman added the now iconic South Balcony. East Wing alterations were also completed in 1946, thus creating additional office space. By 1948, the White House’s load-bearing exterior walls and internal wood beams were close to failure. In 1946, President Harry S. Truman (who originated the White House Gift Shop by permanent order), began the complete reconstruction of the interior of the White House: Interior rooms were completely dismantled, a new internal load-bearing steel frame was constructed inside the walls, and once this massive restoration was completed, interior rooms were rebuilt.

The Executive Residence is made up of six stories: Ground Floor, State Floor, Second Floor, and Third Floor, as a two-story basement. The term White House is often used as a metonym for the Executive Office of the President of the United States and for the president's administration and advisers.

Today, the White House Complex includes the Executive Residence, West Wing, East Wing, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building—the former State Department, which now houses offices for the President's staff and the Vice President—and Blair House, a guest residence.

White House Easter Eggs Signed

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE WHITE HOUSE EASTER EGG ROLL

The original site of the Easter Monday Egg Roll was the grounds of the United States Capitol. By the mid-1870s, the egg rolling activities on the West Terraces had gained notoriety as the children turned the Capitol grounds into their Easter Monday playground. The first egg rolls, largely family affairs, seem to have been held during the administration of President Andrew Johnson. Youngsters of the President's family dyed eggs on Sunday for the Monday rolling, which the First Lady would watch from the South Portico. The workers and tourists watched in fascination as the children rolled both their hard boiled eggs and themselves down the lush green hills.

The egg roll activity of 1876 took its toll on the grounds, a fact that did not go unnoticed by members of Congress. With an already inadequate budget to complete the landscaping and maintenance of the grounds, Congress passed a law forbidding the Capitol grounds to be used as a children's playground. The law was to be enforced in 1877. But that Easter Monday rain poured down, canceling any outdoor activities sending the egg rollers indoors to play.

On Easter Saturday of 1878, a small announcement in the local press informed the egg rollers the new law would be enforced. President Rutherford B. Hayes, taking his daily walk, was approached by a number of young egg rollers who inquired about the possibilities of egg rolling on the South Lawn of the White House. President Hayes, upon his return to the White House, issued an official order that should any children arrive to egg roll on Easter Monday, they were to be allowed to do so. That Monday, as children were being turned away from the Capitol grounds, word quickly spread to go to the White House!

President Hayes and his wife, Lucy, officially opened the White House grounds to the children of the area for egg rolling that Easter Monday. Successive Presidents continued the tradition, and the event has been held on the South Lawn ever since.
