It is a sequel to Capitol Cat & Watch Dog Unite Lady Freedoms, where the inventive duo unite twin "sisters": the bronze Lady Freedom atop the U.S. Capitol Building; and the sculptor's plaster cast of the same Lady Freedom, which spent years in a windowless Capitol basement before being moved to the Visitors Center.
Although both narratives are fantasy tales of magical realism, each is based on historical fact.
