9. Washington, D.C.

    Washington, D.C. is the capital of the United States. It is an unusual city. It is a city that has no state. It is a district--the District of Columbia or D.C. That is why we say Washington, D.C.

   George Washington became the first president of the United States in 1790. At that time the new United States had no capital city. It was necessary to have a capital city that was not a part of a state. Washington picked a place for the capital near his home, Mount Vernon. The state of Maryland gave some land and Virginia gave some land. This made the District of Columbia. The name of the capital is after George Washington.

    The city of Washington, D.C. has wide streets, parks, and beautiful buildings. These buildings tell the history of the United States. The most famous building is the White House. This is the home of the president. Another important building is the Capitol. This is where Congress meets to make the laws of the country.
