ACT Test Centers in District of Columbia

Washington DC Early History

Soon after the creation of the federal district, many residents of the city (and district) of Alexandria (formerly part of Virginia) that became part of it, began to express dissatisfaction. The reason for it was the outstripping development of the “northern coast” of the district: the piers of the port of Georgetown were more in demand; public buildings were built only in the north; most congressmen and government officials lived there. At the same time, the residents of this city (as well as the entire District of Columbia) did not have their representatives in Congress. In Alexandria, a referendum was held on the issue of withdrawing from the District of Columbia, the majority of the residents supported this idea. The US Congress passed the corresponding law and, after the approval of state legislators, the territory of the federal district, located south of the Potomac, in 1847 again became part of Virginia.

For the first decades of its history, Washington was a very small city, only by 1850 its population exceeded 50,000 people. The number of residents grew sharply only during the years of the Civil War (surpassing 130,000 people by 1870), both at the expense of military personnel and in connection with an increase in the number of government officials.

In 1871, Congress abolished separate administrative powers for the cities of Washington and Georgetown, creating uniform governments for the entire federal district.

In 1901, the US Congress created a commission whose task was to develop a development program for the center of the American capital. A group of architects and landscape designers was led by Senator James Macmillan, and it was his name that the plan, which was submitted to US legislators and the public a few months later, received his name.

The “Macmillan Plan” became the basis for the creation of the National Mall, as it has become in our time. Its authors returned to the idea of ​​a wide alley proposed by Langfang, along which stately buildings were to be erected. Although the “MacMillan Plan” was not fully implemented and not all the monuments and parks envisaged by it were built, it is on it that the projects adopted today for the further development of the historical part of Washington are based.
