Ginsburg, who died last Friday of metastatic pancreatic cancer problems, will be the first woman to sleep in the state Friday in the U.S. Capitol, congressional historians say. She will also be the first Jewish person to receive that honor.
Ginsburg meets Rosa Parks, John Lewis and Abraham Lincoln who are kept in the state or kept in honor at the Capitol.
Lying in the state (for government officials and military officers) and respectfully (for private citizens) means that when one’s remains are placed in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., people are allowed to pay tribute. This tribute is considered one of the highest honors.
Since the practice began in 1852, 38 people – including the Ginsburg count – have received the honor, including 12 presidents.
Here are some other historical monuments.
