Eisenhower, who put the Arkansas police and army units under federal command. The President also dispatched a U.S. Airborne Division to protect the affected students.

Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock
The Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock City is the seat of government of the state. The Arkansas State Capitol was built from 1899 to 1915. It is strange that the Arkansas State Capitol was built according to the plans for the Montana State Capitol, although this design was actually in the state of Montana, what was canceled due to suspected fraud should be implemented. The Arkansas State Capitol was built on the site of a prison and its inmates had to help with the construction. Due to a measurement error, the north-south facing Arkansas State Capitol does not fit into the city’s street map. The building was made of sandstone and can be attributed to the style of the revolutionary architecture. There are several monuments on the surrounding grounds, such as a replica of the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
