Every spring, thousands of people visit the Washington, D.C., Tidal Basin to see the cherry blossoms. Memorials to Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Martin Luther King Jr. stand on its banks. The Tidal Basin started as an engineering project, but has also served as a swimming hole, a protest ground, and the scene of a political scandal.
