'Bout time we had one of those in Washington, DC.
The sketch of the storming of the Bastille, commissioned by LaFayette and hanging now at Mt. Vernon has an interesting background. Seems it was found under a bed in a trailer park in Connecticut when bequeathed to the Masonic Charity Foundation of Connecticut, and the Shrine. It now resides at Mt. Vernon along with a key to the Bastille, both gifted to Washington by LaFayette.
