Helene Combs-Dreiling and Ray Rhinehart talked about the Octagon Museum near the White House to mark the 200th anniversary of the December 24, 1814, signing of the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. A group of officials visited from Belgium, the neutral negotiating nation, to plant symbolic Treaty of Ghent rose bushes. The group also toured the National Historic Landmark that became President Madison’s Executive Mansion after the British burned the original Executive Mansion in August of 1814. close
