‘America’s pastor’ is being laid to rest after being honored at Capitol Rotunda.
President Trump and Vice President Pence are among those in attendance, along with several lawmakers.
The Reverend Billy Graham will be buried next to his late wife at the Minister’s Library in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The funeral is taking place under a tent similar to those Graham preached under in his first crusades.
His grandchildren served as pallbearers.
The casket was a simple wooden box that was constructed by inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.
Graham, the spiritual counselor to more than 10 U.S. presidents and evangelist to millions worldwide, died last month at the age of 99.
