As local experts, we hear a lot of incorrect information about Washington DC and American history. Some of it is just ... well, wrong.
There are also common myths that aren't true but are so widely told that most everyone believes them.
We, the historians, travel experts, and all around history nerds at Top Things To Do DC (part of Free Tours by Foot DC) are here to dispel the myths, correct the misconceptions, and explain the really confusing parts of DC history.
