Who are the persons whose familiar names are part of our everyday lives as we live and visit on the streets of Washington, DC? Why are they there? When did they appear and for what reason?
Find out with local author Dr. Mark N. Ozer, on Wednesday, March 5 at 7 p.m., as he discusses his book Washington DC: Streets and Statues. Walking in the Steps of History.
