The District of Columbia is different from anywhere else in the United States. Besides being the nation's capital, it's a federal district that houses the U.S. Government. Although the federal government is central to its economy, D.C. is also a vibrant cultural center, full of exciting theaters, restaurants, clubs, and places where people meet to exchange ideas. Readers learn about the grand buildings, impressive museums, and fascinating historical sites that draw visitors from around the world. This engaging book relates a truly unique story, from geography to the territory's history and government. Highlights of hometown people include Carl Bernstein, Dave Chappelle, Anna J. Cooper, Charles Drew, Bill Nye, Pete Sampras, John Philip Sousa, and Ginuwine.
