  1. First Ladies of the Republic

    Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Dolley Madison, and the Creation of an Iconic American Role

    Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and Dolley Madison were America's first First Ladies, and they faced tremendous challenges: they had to define a role that had no official description, and maintain the dignity of the president's office while avoiding the aristocratic behavior of European nobles that was so contrary to their new republic's ideals. Their public personas had to buoy confidence and prop up their husbands' presidencies, no matter what challenges they were facing. Author Jeanne Abrams looks at these three First Ladies as a group, showing how they influenced one another — and created a new role for women in America.
