the statue on top of the capitol was supposed to be the virgin mary in the earley 1900's but our goverment instead put persephone the goddess of the underworld the motto underneath her E pluribus unum of course means new age order or "new world order" so there for one statue very important in our country has to do with the under world and taking over the united states and then the world this is our goverments plans time for a revolution if you ask me

This article lists the year of restoration incorrectly. I was in Washington D.C. in April of 1994. The statue was encased in scaffolding and being restored at that time. I actually have a dated photo of it. I remember it quite well as it was the highlight of a personal tour.

The Freedom statue was originally designed with a freedom cap on its head. The freedom cap was only worn by Black Slaves who were free me. Secretary of War at the time Jefferson Davis objected to the sculptor's intention to include a liberty cap. I can only conclude that this was the sculpture of a slave. Some may say that the facial features lack African bone structure; that leads to the masses believing that this is a mulatto child (child birthed by slave women impregnated by slave master)which often have an abundance of European facial features.

The truth to this statue is not in the answer above. That answer is what 'they' want you to believe. The true answer, it's a statue of the Greek Goddess, known as the Goddess to the underworld. Her name is Persephone. Look it up. Dont be led down the wrong path.

Hi everyone, let me introduce myself, my name is Stephen Hosmer. Many people call me Mr. Washington DC for termoudous knowledge I have of the city of Washington DC. My top knowledge of all is the metro system, which I have been riding now for nearly 25 years every weekend to all the major attractions in Washington DC. I have a great wealth knowledge of all the cities great museums and monuments, annual and seasonal events, newly openly museums and short term exhibitions, bookstores and libraries, sports events, parks and recreational area's, local tours (your might want to go on) malls and shopping centers and places off the beaten path which you might be looking for, while you'll visiting Washington DC. I also know a lot about places to eat in Washington DC, from the local fast food McDonalds to the very fancy sit down evening out with your family of four. I also have a great wealth of knowledge of where to get government historical related questions answered. So if you post an all-expert question to me I will try to give you a honest, fast, correct answer all the time.
