Bust of Harrison dedicated at Statehouse


Indianapolis - Lawmakers honored the state's only president Tuesday at the Statehouse.

A new bust of Benjamin Harrison, the 23rd president, was unveiled on the second floor. Governor Mitch Daniels told the crowd at the dedication what he liked most about President Harrison was how he went to bed the night of his election right after he was told he won Indiana. Harrison said that was good enough for him and retired for the night, only to be told the next day that he had indeed been elected president.

The bust was sculpted by Indiana native Richard Peglow.
