A historic place

This is the old House of Delegates chamber in the Virginia State Capitol, where Chief Justice John Marshall presided over the famed Aaron Burr trial. A statue of Robert E. Lee (foreground) prevents the visitor from taking any kind of wideangle photograph of the room: by forcing any picture of this hall to be divided in twain, visitors are thereby reminded of how our country itself was once divided by the Civil War.

I learned that from the same tour guide. He has been very helpful.
