about this item

It was 1814. Fifty British soldiers surrounded the large white house, holding poles with flaming rags at the end. All at once, they hurled the blazing poles into the house’s windows. Within seconds, the majestic home was in flames. The fire destroyed almost everything inside. If not for a powerful thunderstorm later that day, the White House might have burned to the ground. The White House traces the incredible story of one of the most important and iconic buildings in the United States. The book describes how the massive residence was built and how different presidents have left their personal marks on the structure. Large color photos, maps, and fact boxes enrich the captivating story, which is sure to engage even the most reluctant readers.
