Facts about Washington, D.C


Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia, commonly known as Washington DC or D.C., is the capital city and federal district of the United States. The city is located on the east bank of the Potomac River, which forms its southwestern border with Virginia and borders Maryland to its north and east.

Washington, D.C., represents the southern point of the Northeast megalopolis, one of the nation’s largest and most influential cultural, political, and economic regions that run along its northeast coast from Boston in the north to Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Constitution provides for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction of the U.S. Congress. Washington, D.C., is not a part of any U.S. state and is not one itself. The Residence Act, adopted on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of the capital district along the Potomac River.

On August 24–25, 1814, during the War of 1812, British forces invaded and raided Washington, D.C., in what is known as the Burning of Washington, D.C. In the attack, the U.S. Capitol, Department of the Treasury, and White House were burned and gutted. Most government buildings were repaired quickly; however, the Capitol was largely under construction at the time and was not completed in its current form until 1868.
