Washington, D.C. Map Cats Meow
Washington, D.C. is one of a few national capitals in the world developed specifically to be the seat of government, and the only city in the United States not located within one of the 50 states. Work on the new city began in 1790 on a site chosen by President Washington. By the 1800’s it was complete enough to officially replace Philadelphia as the nation’s capital. This Cats Meow Collection piece shows some of Washington D.C.’s most renowned memorials and monuments - including The Capitol, The White House, the Pentagon, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
