First of First Ladies: Martha Washington

Front Cover
Capstone, 2009 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 48 pages
"The Revolutionary War brought challenges and hardships to American colonists, but Martha Washington was there to help. The wife of George Washington, commander of the Continental Army, spent cruel winters at Army camps, tending to sick and hungry soldiers, and sewing uniforms. After the war, and with the same dedication, she became the first woman to serve as first lady of the United States, a model that many other first ladies would follow."
