Coming off a year of commemorations of important anniversaries -- the end of the Civil War, the assassination of Abraham Lincoln -- our carefully-revised and up-to-date Easy Guide to the nation's capital tells of recent additions to the city's attractions that make it more compelling than ever. The worth of this easy-to-carry, easy-to-consult, 320-page guidebook is shown by its standing as the fifth most popular of all 70 Frommer's travel guides, a testament to the skills of its author.
