An Encyclopedia of the State, National, and Territorial Capital Edifices of the United StatesBook - 1991
There are 56 capitol structures in the United States and its territories--and this book has 56 entries about all aspects of their genesis, construction and use including the political origins and history of each governmental unit and the story of how each site was selected (with all the political maneuvering and attempts at personal aggrandizement).Facts about the edifices themselves are in abundance--chronologies of construction, personnel (architects, contractors, others), costs, square footage, principal contents and features (e.g., art work, furnishings, interior and exterior finish), annual maintenance and tour information.
