RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions
One of the things I find most intriguing about the Civil War era in Washington is that oyster houses were evidently as common then as coffee houses are now. As a confirmed oyster fiend--the four years I lived in Apalachicola, Florida, as a kid were a continuous oyster fest--I love the thought of an oyster house on every corner!

The only D.C. oyster house I know of nowadays is Hank's, off Dupont Circle. Not certain how long it's been around. Even though I used to drive by it every day when I worked downtown and my office was in walking distance, I've never eaten there.
