The United States Court of Claims held its first meeting in "Willard's Hotel" on this site on May 11, 1855. The court was established to allow citizens to sue the U.S. Government. In 1861, President Lincoln wrote of the court:

"It is as much the duty of the government to render prompt justice against itself, in favor of citizens, as it is to administer the same between private individuals."

This memorial is placed here on behalf of the United States Court of Federal Claims and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the successor courts to the Court of Claims, to commemorate its 150th anniversary.
