Washington D.C. is our nation’s capital. It’s an independent district, not part of any state and stands apart from the rest of the country. It’s a large area with over 600,000 people located on the edge of Maryland beside the Potomac River.
History of Washington D.C.
As you would expect from the capital of the country, Washington D.C. is rich in history. Founded in 1791 from a section of Maryland and a section of Virginia, the city was born out of the Residence Act of 1790.
After the Pennsylvania Mutiny in 1783, James Madison saw the need for an independent capital that didn’t rely on any state for anything. The site was chosen by George Washington, who signed the Residence Act into law and after whom the capital was named.
In exchange for paying off the war debts of Virginia and Maryland, the government was granted land at the border of each along the Potomac in the cities of Georgetown and Alexandria. This was measured out in a diamond shape and the city began its new life.
The Organic Act of 1801 cemented the independence of Washington D.C. and construction began. Despite a raid by the British in 1812 that burned down the Capitol, the Treasury and the White House, construction was completed in 1868. Alexandria was ceded back to Virginia in 1846 as Georgetown was hugely favored at Alexandria’s expense.
During the 19th century, the city grew to over a hundred thousand souls, but was still relatively backward. It still had dirt streets, poor sanitation, very basic public works and it wasn’t delivering what it’s residents needed. A huge project of beautification began in 1873 that bankrupted the city, but provided the basis of modernization that resulted in the city we know and love today.
