The Washington Monument is the last thing on the list of items to go to the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian is poised to unveil the last item in its collection of the world’s most important and enduring monuments, and it will be buried on the grounds of the Capitol building.

The move is a significant moment in the preservation of the most famous structures in America, a legacy that began when President Theodore Roosevelt established the Smithsonian Institution in 1909 to study the causes and cures of disease.

But the Smithsonian’s long history of preserving the nation’s history has been under assault from critics who argue the institution’s mission is to be a “bureaucratic body.”

They have argued that the institution has become a “vast administrative machine” whose sole purpose is to collect money and collect artifacts.

“In this new era of national history, we are seeing a resurgence of these critical questions,” the Smithsonian said in a statement on Monday, announcing the museum’s move to the Capitol.

“While there are certainly many worthy questions to ask, the answer to this question is clear.

The Smithsonian must not become a ‘bureau of artifacts.'”

The move comes on the heels of President Donald Trump’s decision to dismantle the Smithsonian and remove the artifacts from the National Mall.

In recent weeks, the White House has proposed to scrap the Museum of African American History and Culture, the National Museum of American History, the Robert E. Lee Memorial, and the Jefferson Davis Memorial, which are all in the Smithsonian National Museum.
