A guard tower, lower right, from Louisiana State Penitentiary, also known as “Angola” and “The Farm” is raised off of a flatbed truck before being lowered into the construction site of The National Museum of African American History and Culture, beside the Washington Monument, in Washington, Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013. The tower, part of the museum’s inaugural exhibition on segregation, is too large to install after the building is complete and will be installed during construction and the museum will be completed around it.
