Statue of John Hanson

A statue of John Hanson is in the Senate Chambers. Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller is in background. Sen. Catherine Pugh (D-40) is lead sponsor in the Senate of a bill to place a statue of Harriet Tubman in National Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol. But this would mean replacing the statue of Hanson, an idea that upsets Miller and other historians.Kim Hairston, Baltimore Sun
