Washington, D.C.: Capital of the United States
As the capital city of the United States, Washington is full of historical and governmental attractions. Founded in 1790 by the Residence Act, Washington was built on land donated by the states of Virginia and Maryland, and its location in the Mideast part of the country was selected to foster unity between the northern and southern regions of the nation. It was named after the first President, George Washington. In Washington you'll find the Capitol, which houses the United States Congress; the White House, residence and workplace of the President; The Washington Monument, a gigantic obelisk commemorating President Washington; the Lincoln Memorial, which honors the memory of President Abraham Lincoln; the Jefferson Memorial, built in memory of President Jefferson; the Smithsonian Institution, a group of museums and research centers; and many memorials to the fallen soldiers of conflicts in which the U.S. has been involved. These are only some of the many things to see and do in Washington, which lies at the centre of a metropolitan area with a population of nearly 6 million.
