The FIRST First Lady: Anne Barrett as Martha Washington
March 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$10.00
In 1759, the beautiful and wealthy widow Martha Dandridge Custis married the handsome and successful soldier George Washington. This decision would lead her from the battlefields of the American Revolution to the highest echelons of the infant republic. Later eulogized as “the worthy partner of the worthiest of men,” she used her acute social sense to meet the expectations of her country and define the role of First Lady. We’ll catch up with “Lady Washington” in 1792 as she reminisces about the winters spent near the Revolutionary battlefield, the soldiers she met and comforted, and the songs they sang. She’ll also talk about her role and social obligations as First Lady, the current political climate and her concerns for her husband as he faces the challenges of guiding this new country.
