Lincoln in the Bardo

Andrea Seiger is walking us through the very space and setting of the story of Lincoln visiting his son Willie’s grave in the bestselling book, Lincoln in the Bardo. Lincoln’s clandestine visits occurred in the dark of night. Andrea is author of “111 Places You Must Not Miss in Washington DC” and the event is sponsored by Politics and Prose. Check out P&P website for an overwhelmingly interesting list of trips and events!

We celebrate Reserve Officer Joseph Pozell

Washington, DC

There are no words for what we felt when we received this sacred tribute! We are certain that the same rings true for Chief of Staff to Police Chief Peter Newsham, Matt Bromeland, and staff while creating and submitting this story.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for the special effort you put into this and Officer Remington’s stories. We can’t thank you enough!

There isn’t anyone in Georgetown, even today, who didn’t know Officer Pozell or know someone who did. He was that kind of guy!
