For this Capitol Project image, I asked everyone in the capitol building to show up at noon on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, for a portrait revisiting Alfred Eisenstaedt's famous staircase images from the 1930s. You can see Eisenstaedt's Naval Academy portrait here and the student nurses from the Roosevelt Hospital here.
