Washington, D.C. was formally called the District of Columbia; it is generally referred to as Washington, “the District”, or in everyday’s language D. C. Washington, D. C. is the Capital of the United States of America.
On July 16, 1790, the United States Congress approved the creation of a federal district to become the national capital as permitted by the U.S. Constitution. The District is therefore not a part of any U.S. state. It was formed from land along the Potomac River donated by the states of Maryland and Virginia; however, the Virginia portion was returned by Congress in 1846.
