Map of Washington City, District of Columbia, seat of the federal government : respectfully dedicated to the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of North America. This map was created by Albert Boschke in 1857. Decatur House and the adjoined slave quarters can be seen along H Street, but it is also important to recognize that many homes on Lafayette Square and beyond had similar structures behind them.
