At the point when the pinnacle arrived at 156 feet in tallness in 1854, political fighting and absence of assets halted the venture for quite a long while, and the Civil War created additional interference with the goal that the pinnacle was not covered until 1885, when it was at last finished by the Army Corps of Engineers.
