View of Washington / drawn from nature and on stone by E. Sachse ; lith. and print in colors by E. Sachse & Comp.
Founded on July 16th, 1790, the capital of the United States was known as the City of Washington when this map was produced. It was not until 1871 when Congress merged the city with the Territory of Columbia, thus forming Washington, DC. This beautiful panoramic map provides a early look at our nation's capital.
