In 1791, President George Washington appointed Major Pierre L'Enfant, a French engineer who had served in the American Revolution, to design the city of Washington as the new capital of the country. L'Enfant saw the task as far more grandiose, believing he was not only locating the capital, but also devising the city plan and designing the buildings.
The National Archives preserves and protects some 28,000 plans of public buildings across the United States.
