Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
"The invention of Washington, D.C., is in part a soaring story of national aspiration, in part a cautionary tale of the first great landgrabbing boondoggle in American history, and in part a grim record of slavery's buried history."
The above is only one sentence from Fergus M. Bordewich's novel Washington The Making of the American Capital. [page 19]
