Summary
It was 1814. Fifty British soldiers holding flaming poles surrounded a large house in Washington, DC. All at once, they hurled the poles into the house's windows. Within seconds, the majestic home was in flames. The fire spread, destroying almost everything inside. If not for the heavy rain from a powerful thunderstorm later that day, the White House might have been burned to the ground. Look inside to read the fascinating story of this iconic American building
