On September 18, 1793, George Washington laid the cornerstone of the Capitol building, the future home of the legislative branch of government. Six years earlier, on September 17, 1787, Washington was among the 39 men who signed the United States Constitution; effectively putting the framework of the new government into place.  Despite this, the physical location of the government would not be completed for many years.
