Overview

Ever wonder how the federal city got created? Want to find out how the Chief Executive of the time, George Washington, decided where to place the Federal City, a 10-mile square allotment granted by Congress in 1787, as our national seat of government? Hear about the process and the political intrigue that went on to secure the land, to set the boundary stones, and how these markers have fared over the last few hundred years. Presented by Gayle T.
