ReDistricted: Tales of Washington, DC

Smith's Pharmacy by Gordon Harris

I just found out about ReDistricted, “an online comics anthology focused on lesser-known historical stories about Washington, D.C.” There are a variety of two-page stories, with new ones every two weeks.

Find out who Walter Reed was, the guy the hospital is named after. Read about a women’s suffrage movement march in 1913. Discover how the cherry blossom trees were established. Learn about the effects of an earthquake on the National Cathedral. And many more.

The site is edited by Matt Dembicki, who also edited District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, DC. Each strip has a resource list with articles and other information on the comic’s topic. The latest, by Gordon Harris, is about Smith’s Pharmacy, a local business affected by the events of the 1968 Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination.
