The Washington DC is officially known as the District of Columbia. In the 17th century early European exploration of the region took the Washington DC. Georgetown was established in 1751 when the Maryland Legislature purchased sixty acres of land for the town from George Gordon. On January 23rd 1788 James Madison stated in detail for the need of a federal district. He is writing in the "Federalist No. 43" arguing that the national capital needed to be distinct from the states. Residence Act provided for a new permanent capital to be located on the Potomac River, the exact area to be selected by President Washington on July 16th 1790. The District of Columbia Organic Act of 1801 organized to place the entire federal territory, Georgetown, and Alexandria under the jurisdiction of Congress. The Act also organized the territory within the District into two counties; they are County of Washington and the County of Alexandria. Washington DC came under attack during the War of 1812.

I am going through the interview process with the UDC Backus campus at 5171 South Dakota Avenue, NE and I am looking for a fully furnished basement or apartment with private kitchen and bathroom. This listing seems to be a good prospect. However, I have not been able to contact the person regarding this rental. The listing says to contact Rae but it does not allow for me to email her.
