From the dust jacket:

'The Washington that greeted federal legislators in 1800, when they first steamed into the recently chosen capital, was little more than a few buildings and roughly indicated roads on the bank of the Potomac River.

It focuses on the people and institutions that made up the local community, and how and why it was influenced by the status of national capital.'
