About the Book
An amusing and informative look at the U.S. capital, its institutions, traditions, and eccentricities.

Humorous cartoons accompany this offbeat guide to the District of Columbia. It is filled with intriguing details about important landmarks and the people who have come to the capital to run the nation’s business, celebrate, protest, live in the thick of it all, or just visit. From the aluminum tip of the towering Washington Monument to the marble bathtubs in the Capitol Building’s basement, this book offers a top to bottom look at Washington, D.C. and its eclectic history. The book's endpapers feature a map of the District.

This book is the perfect companion to BEN FRANKLIN: His Wit and Wisdom from A to Z and ABE LINCOLN: His Wit and Wisdom from A to Z.
