White House Gifts
Ok, let’s get started! This store here at the corner called White House Gifts is a great place to get some souvenirs of your visit here in Washington, DC. They have a little bit of everything in there, and if you spend more than $50, you can get your picture taken at their replica of the oval office. How about that? Get in there and buy some trinkets and then crossover 15th Street to get to Pennsylvania Avenue. We are headed toward the White House.

Albert Gallatin Statue
I’d like to introduce you to Albert Gallatin. That’s the man depicted in the statue on your left. Swedish by birth, he emigrated to America in 1780 at just 19 years old. Fifteen years later he found himself elected to the House of Representatives and constantly fighting with the independent minded, stubborn, passionate Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, whose statue is on the other side of this building. Gallatin succeeded Hamilton as Secretary of the Treasury, and served under President Thomas Jefferson, and President James Madison. Under the two presidents, Gallatin served as Secretary for just under thirteen years, which is the longest term to date of any Secretary in the Department’s history. In his final year, before he retired, Gallatin went to Russia to represent the United States in the peace conference with England and France settling hostilities. As a result, the Treaty of Ghent was signed December 24, 1814, thus ending the war of 1812 between the United States of America and the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Now that’s how to retire on a high note. Ok, keep heading west toward the White House.
