    Book Description:
    A story most Americans don’t know. *Slaves built the Capitol, White House, and other important Washington structures *The National Mall sits on the site of the city’s once-bustling slave market *The grounds that are now Arlington National Cemetery were once a self-sustaining village for former slaves Millions of people visit the National Mall, the White House, and the U.S. Capitol each year. If they only hear the standard story, a big question remains: Where’s the black history? Packed with new information and archival photos, Black Men Built the Capitol answers this question.
