Inside the Vault: America's First Lady: Martha Washington
Join us on December 17 as we discuss two letters written by America’s first First Lady: Martha Washington. Written during two pivotal moments in her life, these primary sources reflect Martha’s views at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War and at the beginning of George’s presidency. What was Martha’s hope for the country after the war? What views did the First Lady have as she traveled to New York to be with President Washington?

Join our curators, Victoria Ann Scovens from “Hamilton,” and Rosanne Lichatin, 2005 National History Teacher of the Year, on Thursday, December 17 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT) to learn the fascinating story behind these rare materials.
