WASHINGTON, D.C.: Not A SWAMP.

  • Periodical
  • New Republic. Mar2022, Vol. 253 Issue 3, p12-21. 10p. 1 Color Photograph.
  • The article discusses how nobody likes Washington. Even before it was built, Thomas Tredwell, an anti- Federalist New York state senator, called it a "political hive, where all the drones in the society are to be collected to feed on the honey of the land." Treasury Secretary Oliver Wolcott Jr. wrote in 1800 that "most of the inhabitants are low people, whose appearance indicates vice and intemperance."
