- Did you know the Old Stone House on M Street in Georgetown was George Washington's surveying headquarters in 1791?
- Were you aware that the city is built on a swamp?
- What do the hoofs mean on equestrian statues around the city?
- Have you heard that while Abraham Lincoln was touring Fort Stevens in 1864, a young Oliver Wendell Holmes ordered the President to duck down in very unflattering terms?
We've all heard variations on these stories.
Just one question: are they true?
