Who are the persons whose familiar names are part of our everyday lives as we live and visit on the streets of Washington? Why are they there? When did they appear and for what reason? This book deals with the design of the city to reflect its purpose as the capital city of a great country to embody that country and its history; and then of its subsequent role as a world capital to reflect the principles that make it so important to people the world over. People interested in the national capital –tourists, students, recent or long time residents—can all learn the fascinating story of the country’s history as expressed in its street names and statues. This book provides a broad perspective about the history and design of Washington DC that is both highly interesting and accurate. - Dr Richard Randall, Executive Secretary Emeritus, United States Board on Geographic Names
