Former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg lays in repose on the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 23, 2020.
The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will become on Friday the first woman in American history to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol.
Ginsburg, who died last week at the age of 87, will also be the first Jewish-American to lie in state and just the second Supreme Court justice.
Her casket will be brought to the Capitol in the morning for a private ceremony attended by her family and lawmakers.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, plan to attend.
Ginsburg has lain in repose for two days at the Supreme Court, where thousands of people paid their respects, including President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
Trump plans to nominate a woman on Saturday to to take Ginsburg's place on the top court, where she served for 27 years.
She will be buried next week at Arlington National Cemetery beside her husband, Martin, who died in 2010.
