In early 1863, Union officials were starting to worry.
General McClellan wasn't making much ground against Lee's Confederate troops: His attempts to take Richmond, their capital city, had failed the previous summer. President Lincoln, growing impatient with the actions of his generals, ordered Samuel Du Pont to the White House to discuss future plans with the admiral.
Du Pont was given control of a massive fleet that included nine ironclad monitors and was ordered to take Charleston using naval power alone. The admiral protested: Based on his experience and the slow speed and relatively few guns included on these ships, he believed that the Union needed ground support to have a chance at taking the city.
Du Pont was right: Five of the nine ironclads were heavily damaged by the superior firepower of the Confederacy at Charleston, and one ship was sunk completely. Unfortunately, Du Pont was chosen as the political scapegoat and ended up losing his commission the next year. But, he did end up with a circle named in his honor.
These and other American legends are waiting for you on your trolley tour. You'll hit some of the most important points in American history, from the White House to the aforementioned DuPont Circle to the famous memorials of the mall.
As your friendly, knowledgeable tour guide fills you in on the most interesting anecdotes of these historic structures, you will feel these stories and characters start to come to life around you, alive with everlasting vitality thanks to the powerful, comprehensive tribute to America that is the National Mall.
Plenty of reading to catch up on
The Library of Congress, founded in 1800, was the brainchild of James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. After it was mostly destroyed by the British during the War of 1812, Jefferson donated his entire personal collection of around 6,000 books to restore it. Today, the Library of Congress has over 160 million items placed on over 800 miles of bookshelves, making it the largest library in the world.
