The President's House by George Munger

Ink and watercolor drawing by George Munger, circa 1814-1815. 30.2 x 39.9 cm (11.89 x 15.71 in). Located in the White House, Washington, DC, USA. The White House as it looked following the British fires of August 24, 1814, the low point of the War of 1812. These British were the first and only foreign troops to ever invade the capital. The odd S-shaped curve above the near corner of the roof was probably part of a lightning protection system.
