The very embodiment of the saying “Behind every great man is a great woman,” Martha
Washington, as the First First Lady, played a central role in the birth of our nation.
Through Martha’s eyes you’ll see her life with George, their joys and heartaches. She’ll
relate the hardships and victories of the American Revolution, even sing the songs that
she heard around the encampments. She’ll describe the road that led her husband to the
presidency, and the challenges she faced in defining the new role of First Lady. As well
as events on the world stage, she’ll speak of domestic affairs, her household, and her
children, providing a glimpse into the 18th century life that she and George shared in one
of the most amazing periods in history. In this living history performance, Martha
Washington will transport you to the times and places where our nation’s story began!
Registration is required.
