An engraving from Peter Force’s National Calendar 0f 1820 (White House History 35)

An engraving from Peter Force’s National Calendar of 1820 shows the rebuilt White House and federal executive offices. In the British invasion, the President’s House was burned August 24, 1814, and the executive offices—then only two structures—followed the next morning.
