Front Cover
The Rosen Publishing Group, Inc, Dec 15, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 112 pages
Dolley Madison s grace, charm, and political skills made her a valuable and full partner with her husband, President James Madison. Widowed at the age of twenty-five with two children to care for, Dolley would struggle through a difficult life with dignity. Drawn to the young widow, James Madison would recognize her considerable talents and together they would reach the highest office in the land. Her role as first lady was a surprisingly contemporary display of the exercise of power from behind the scenes.
