I picked this book up because we were traveling to DC and I wanted to read something relatedI found this book completely fascinating I had no idea how DC came to be or all the controversy surrounding it Standiford was able to weave the story of how DC came to be and how it s first few decades went in a way that was informative and entertaining without being too technical I enjoyed the book tremendously and loved the history lessons learned itSometimes though Standiford jumps around a bit then goes back and it took me a few seconds to realize there was a jump But overall I enjoyed the book and recommend it

Les Standiford s Washington Burning How a Frenchman s Vision of Our Nation s Capital Survived Congress the Founding Fathers the invading British Army tells the story of the creation of Washington DC how it came to become our nation s capital in December 1800 The book gains its title from the burning of the city in August 1814 by the British in the War of 1812 follows the decisions made by the Continental Congress to decide as to where exactly our nation s capital should be The main focus is on Pierre L Enfant who becomes the designer for the layout of the new city who also once deposed of the project spends his entire life trying to get credit for the design of the city Standiford s story spans the majority of the years from 1782 until L Enfant s death in 1825 shows the struggles the new nation had in even establishing the city let alone keeping it viable It also reminds us that bureaucracy was just as strong in those days as they are in the present one While the history itself is a little bit interesting the story goes astray in starting off with references to the 911 attacks the over focusing on the destruction of the city by the British in 1814 There s also a bit of disorganization of things when it comes to L Enfant s legacy the the timeframe it took to complete the city itself Overall not a bad history of DC but there are likely better ones out there
