Washington DC is the Federal Territory that I call home, it is on the east coast of America, bordering both Maryland and Virginia. Previously it was inhabited by Native Americans before the European settlers came.
The Native Americans lived by the Anacostia River and in other areas near there, when the European settlers came, they fought over grazing rights. In the end they built a fort and two years later, the Conoy (Piscataway) left west to the Point of Rocks in western Maryland. Many different tribes of Native American like the Nacotchtank , Patawomeck and Conoy lived on various sides of the federal territory
Washington DC is also known as the District of Columbia after Christopher Columbus
