Hoover and Zimbalist

remained mutual admirers for the rest of Hoover's life. Hoover would later hold Zimbalist up as an image role model for F.B.I. employees to emulate in their personal appearance.

history large

. Washington , which would scarcely notice another conference, Daytonians were proud to be part of history. Large signs at the commercial airport hailed Dayton as the "temporary center of international peace". The local newspapers and television stations covered the story from every angle, drawing the people deeper into the proceedings. When we ventured into a restaurant or a shopping center downtown, people crowded around, saying that they were praying for us. Warren Christopher was given at least one standing ovation in a restaurant. Families on the air base placed "candles of peace" in their front windows, and people gathered in peace vigils outside the base. One day they formed a "peace chain", although it was not large enough to surround the sprawling eight-thousand-acre base. Ohio's famous ethnic diversity was on display. Richard Holbrooke, ''To End a War'', p. 234 The choice of the pentagon as a symbol of the Aneristic Principle is partly related to The Pentagon in Virginia near Washington, D.C., partly a nod to the Law of Fives (#Law of Fives), partially for the Golden Ratio references associated with the pentagon apple allegory, and wholly for the five-sided pentagon from the "Starbuck's Pebbles" story in the ''Discordia''. The Golden Apple of Discordia is the one from the story of The Original Snub (below). Demonstrations and incarcerations After being discharged from the Navy in 1972, Donaldson moved to Washington, D.C., where he "worked as Pentagon (The Pentagon) correspondent for the ''Overseas Weekly'', a privately owned newspaper distributed to American servicemen stationed in Europe". Donaldson considered himself a Quaker and took part in the Langley Hill Monthly Meeting, where he was part of a group influenced by "a series of pray-ins at the White House sponsored by the Community for Creative Non-Violence (CCNV)" who felt a call to "hold a memorial meeting for worship at the White House to commemorate the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki (Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki) on its 28th anniversary and for the victims of all wars and violence" on August 9, 1973. The protesters (referred to as the "White House Seven") were arrested for unlawful entry and released on bail except for Donaldson, who refused and spent the night in the D.C. jail before being released by a judge the next morning.

numerous time

. In connection with the Virginia Central, it was the only rail link that existed between the capitals at Washington, D.C., and Richmond (Richmond, Virginia). The importance of the link drew Union Army troops to the 1861 First Battle of Bull Run in an attempt to gain control of Manassas Junction. This important junction traded hands numerous time during the war. Confederate (Confederate States Army) Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson (Stonewall Jackson) took advantage of its importance by attacking it in the Battle of Manassas Station Operations (Battle of Manassas Station Ops.) to draw the Union into the 1862 Second Battle of Bull Run. The 1863 Battle of Brandy Station and Second Battle of Rappahannock Station (Battle of Rappahannock Station II) were also fought near the railroad line.

Washington, D.C.

'''Washington, D.C.''', formally the '''District of Columbia''' and commonly referred to as '''Washington''', "'''the District'''", or simply '''D.C.''', is the capital (Capital city) of the United States. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast (East Coast of the United States). The U.S. Constitution (United States Constitution) provided for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction (District of Columbia home rule) of the Congress (United States Congress) and the District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state.

The states of Maryland and Virginia each donated land to form the federal district, which included the pre-existing settlements of Georgetown (Georgetown (Washington, D.C.)) and Alexandria (Alexandria, Virginia). Named in honor of George Washington, the City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the new national capital. In 1846, Congress returned the land originally ceded by Virginia (District of Columbia retrocession); in 1871, it created a single municipal government (District of Columbia Organic Act of 1871) for the remaining portion of the District.

Washington, D.C., had an estimated population of 658,893 in 2014, the 23rd-most populous city (List of United States cities by population) in the United States. Commuters from the surrounding Maryland and Virginia suburbs raise the city's population to more than one&nbsp;million during the workweek. The Washington metropolitan area, of which the District is a part, has a population of 5.8&nbsp;million, the seventh-largest (Table of United States Metropolitan Statistical Areas) metropolitan statistical area (United States metropolitan statistical area) in the country.

The centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are in the District, including the Congress, President (President of the United States), and Supreme Court (Supreme Court of the United States). Washington is home to many national monuments and museums (List of museums in Washington, D.C.), which are primarily situated on or around the National Mall. The city hosts 176 foreign embassies (List of diplomatic missions in the United States) as well as the headquarters of many international organizations, trade unions, non-profit organizations, lobbying groups, and professional associations.

A locally elected mayor (Mayor of the District of Columbia) and a 13‑member council (Council of the District of Columbia) have governed the District since 1973. However, the Congress maintains supreme authority over the city and may overturn local laws. D.C. residents elect a non-voting (District of Columbia voting rights), at-large congressional delegate (Non-voting members of the United States House of representatives) to the U.S. House of Representatives, but the District has no representation in the U.S. Senate. The District receives three electoral votes (Electoral College (United States)) in presidential elections as permitted by the Twenty-third Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified in 1961.
