Description
 
An account of how the Civil War transformed the nationís capital from the debating forum for a loose union of states into the seat of a forceful central government. Before 1861, Washington was a dusty, muddy city of 60,000. But at the onset of war, thousands of soldiers, job seekers, nurses, good-time girls, gamblers, newly freed slaves, poured in. Here is their story, told through the men and women who brought the city to rambunctious life. For 4 years, the city was awash in drama and sometimes comedy, until the assassination of Lincoln became the tragedy of the century. By the time the grand two-day victory parade of 150,000 troops surged along Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington became a capital to be reckoned with throughout the world. Illustrations.
