Volume One Patrick M.
Reynolds brings history
to life with a sense of humor. His exciting drawings put you
on the scene with the conflicts, madness, plus the wheeling and
dealing that resulted in the location and construction of the
U.S. capital city. This book covers the early history of DC from
1776 to 1863. You'll be surprised at how many cities served as
the U.S. capital; you'll be amazed that the city was built--despite
all the bickering, petty jealousies, and down-right stupidity.
