About

This Event is free and open to the public
Born into a Quaker family in North Carolina, Dolley Madison became the wife of James Madison, our fourth President. Dolley was a trailblazer; the first "First Lady" of the land, first wife of a President to have a ship named in her honor, and to be pictured on the cover of a magazine, first to decorate the White house, and later in life, first to send a personal message by telegraph. Join Lady Madison in the spring of 1817 as she prepares to leave Washington City and reminisces about her youth in Philadelphia, and her husband James' rise to the Presidency. Mrs. Madison will charm you with her hospitality, her experiences and, of course, the burning of the White House and her role in saving the portrait of George Washington. This 45 minute presentation is followed by question and answer session.
