Congressional leaders plan to unveil a bronze statue of President Gerald Ford in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol.
House and Senate leaders plan to attend Tuesday's dedication, along with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and members of Ford's family.
Ford is the only president in America's history who was not elected either president or vice president. He represented western Michigan in Congress before President Richard Nixon chose him to replace the disgraced Vice President Spiro Agnew.
Ford became president when Nixon resigned in 1974 amid the Watergate scandal.
Ford died in 2006 at the age of 93.
The statue will replace a statue of Michigan abolitionist Zachariah Chandler. Federal law lets each state display two statues in the Capitol at one time.
