The Washington Monument in 2019

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and also known as D.C. or Washington, is the capital city of the United States of America. Founded after the American Revolution as the seat of government of the newly independent country, Washington was named after George Washington, the first president of the United States and a Founding Father. As the seat of the United States federal government and several international organizations, Washington is an important world political capital.

History

In 1962, 7000 protesters, many from the Students for a Democratic Society, protested against nuclear weapons and the presence of Doctor Manhattan.[1]

Laurie Juspeczyk and Doctor Manhattan moved to D.C. during their relationship in 1970. In 1977 D.C. was the site of the riots against the costumed adventurers. Manhattan and Juspeczyk attempted to control angry demonstrators outside the grounds of the White House during the riots. Juspeczyk had managed to separate the crowd's leaders; however, fearing that they would soon become violent, Manhattan teleported the entire crowd to their individual homes.[2]
