"The first books were ordered from England and shipped across the Atlantic
in 11 hair trunks and a map case. The Library was housed in the new Capitol
until August 1814, when British troops invaded Washington and burned the
Capitol Building; the small ********congressional library******** of some
3,000 volumes was lost in the fire."

There's much written about Pilate, even in the Congressional Record. The
jews attempted to re-write history to make it appear that Pilate was
mentally unstable and thus was the one responsible for crucifying Christ.
This of course conflicts with the Holy Bible:
Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that
rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the
multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to
Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us,
and on our children.
Who are "all the people" who were so intent on crucifying Christ that they
said "His blood be on us, and on our children"? Why, jews, of course.
John 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this,
he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault
Most of the people in Judaea at the time were Israelites, not jews. It's
true that jews were 95% of the problems, which makes them seem like a bigger
proportion of the population, but even today jews are 95% of the world's
problems even though they are only .25% of the world's population.
