Discover the remarkable life of Martha Washington....
Martha Washington was the original First Lady of the United States and, of course, the wife of General and President George Washington. Yet as much as history has kept her lingering in the shadows of her husband, she has her own unique story to tell. This biography delves into her early life in colonial Virginia, her first marriage to Daniel Parke Custis, and the untimely death that left her a young widow managing a vast estate. The narrative then charts her storied courtship and subsequent marriage to George Washington, the man who would become the father of a burgeoning nation.
Venture into the heart of the Revolutionary War years, where Martha emerged as a figure of resolve and comfort, not just for George, but for the beleaguered Continental Army. Having that said, she set the stage for much of what was to come as it pertained to decorum and officialdom in Washington, D.C. This book explores her life and legacy in full.
Discover a plethora of topics such as:
- Early Life in Colonial Virginia
- A Young Widow
- Meeting George
- Life at Mount Vernon
- Lady Washington during the War
- War’s End: The First Lady
- And Much More!
