  1. I went with my daughter school we took lots of pictures the pictures we took of of the outside of the capital you can see the image of a little boy standing in the window wearing clothing and it looks like a bonnet he’s got his head held down but it’s very obvious what it is if you’re looking at the Capitol building head on he’s in the middle window on the left hand side closest to the door

    I noticed the cold spots in the rotunda walkway I went on a school trip in 4th grade now in 9th but I remember the cold spots. I also saw a shadowy figure but it was faint and it disappeared after I saw it
