Robert Pohl, the other half of the Walking Shtick duo, brings us Wicked Capitol Hill. Pohl includes such historic crimes as the affair between the Congressman and the Capitol Hill cobbler's daughter that ended in murder at the hands of the press. Tales range from the backrooms of Congress and the docks of the Naval Yard to the bars of 8th street and the grave of an infamous madam buried at the Congressional Cemetery. Pohl has worked to balance the tales between those of government officials misbehaving on the Hill and of truly local crimes.

Book Description The History Press. Paperback. Condition: New. 128 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.8in.Since LEnfant laid his avenues, Capitol Hill has been home to the most titillating tales and unsavory indignities. Consider the 1887 affair between the congressman and the local cobblers daughter that led to murder at the hands of the press--literally. Such misdeeds were not confined to the backrooms of Congress. Nearby, the old Capitol Jail housed Confederate spies in squalid conditions, and years later, an Eighth Street tavern had the dubious privilege of evicting a young George C. Scott. From the wharves of the Navy Yard to the grave of an infamous madam in Congressional Cemetery, tour guide and local historian Robert Pohl wends his way through the most wickedly sinful scandals in Capitol Hills history. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781609495879
