Last night was the first time since the US Civil War that federal troops slept at the Capitol to protect it from possible violence, reports say.

Troops from the National Guard were seen sleeping near a bust of Abraham Lincoln, the president who led the Union during the 1861 to 1865 conflict that claimed 620,000 American lives.

Troops were also seen by the Washington Post sleeping beside a plaque which reads: “This tablet records the fact that the following troops were quartered in the United States Capitol in response to President Lincoln’s call for volunteers, April 15, 1861.”

It honours soldiers who came from Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and Washington DC and used the building as a war barracks.
