A look back at Washingtology, Part II

Front and center in the WaPo and Cultural Tourism DC joint project Washingtology is the War of 1812.   Written a year ago, War of 1812: The National Portrait Gallery’s 'A Nation Emerges' Reviewed considers the exhibit, which closed earlier this year.   Thankfully, the exhibit is available online.   A quintessential illustration of the war and how Americans felt with the win, or draw depending on it you opt for myth or fact, is We Owe Allegiance to No Crown by John Archibald Woodside (1781–1852).

In 2011, Cultural Tourism DC and the Washington Post joined forces to offer readers "Washingtology, where readers are invited to 'Go deep in D.C.' Washingtology is an interactive forum for discussing DC, telling stories, sharing photos."
