The Rev. Billy Graham's casket will lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol next Wednesday and Thursday.  

The public viewing will take place in the Capitol's rotunda. 

The honor is extremely rare usually going to presidents and members of Congress — then it's technically called lying in state. Graham, who died at 99 this week, will become only the fourth private citizen to receive it. 

In 2005, Rosa Parks became the first woman to lie in honor.
