The casket of Justice Bader Ginsburg has arrived on the Capitol Plaza after it lay in repose at the Supreme Court Wednesday and Thursday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer greeted the motorcade alongside members of Ginsburg's family. The honor guard will be escorting the casket.
Ginsburg will become the first woman and Jewish person in history to lie in state in the US Capitol when her casket is placed shortly in National Statuary Hall.
Lying in state (for government official and military officers) and lying in honor (for private citizens) is when someone's remains are placed in the US Capitol in Washington, DC, to allow the public to pay their respects. This tribute is considered one of the highest honors.
