Benjamin Banneker, surveyor of DC, remembered on 287th birthday
November 9 carries a historical significance for Washington, D.C. — it's the birth date of the African American man who surveyed Washington, D.C., planning it into the city it is today. Benjamin Banneker's 287th birthday was celebrated via Twitter by the Council of DC. "He helped survey the original boundaries of the District of Columbia. The good, pre-retrocession boundaries, just to be clear."
