Remember the Ladies

Two of them raised money and sewed socks and shirts for Revolutionary War soldiers. One was most charismatic, and a fourth threatened a second revolution if women’s rights were not included in the new United States government!  Who were these seamstresses, trendsetters, and revolutionaries? They were the most famous of our nation’s founding mothers: three of the first, First Ladies of the United States, and the long-suffering wife of our first Treasury Secretary. This lecture examines the personal, social, and political lives of these four women: Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Elizabeth Hamilton, and Dolly Madison, as they helped create the United States of America.
