Living and working in Washington DC, we have come to refer to it as the Republic of Stories. By that we meant that while other great cities grew up organically beside a river or the coast and emerged as centers of great stories. DC was designed from the start to be a city that would be built to tell the story of this young Republic. That is why it was given the name of the person probably most responsible for the new nation’s existence. From that time on, the city has added memorials and museums and sacred sites to promote the telling and the retelling of those seminal stories that make up the Republic.
