Washington, D.C., formerly the District of Columbia, and commonly referred to as just Washington, is the capital of the United States. It is named after the first President of the United States, George Washington. The city has a professional American football team, the Washington Redskins.
In an alternate timeline, Biff Tannen received a sports almanac detailing fifty years of sports statistics from his older self. Since he was only seventeen, he couldn't bet, so on November 13, 1955, he told his grandmother to make a bet on the Washington Redskins. When he attempted to explain which team he wanted her to bet on, he incorrectly stated that George Washington was the "fifth president" of the United States.
