Martha Washington Part 1: What Happened After She Outlived Both Husbands and all Her Children?
In 1784, while relaxing in Mount Vernon after the Revolutionary war, Martha Washington received a call from the future …
After eight long years of war, Martha wanted some time to relax and enjoy the fruits of her labor. When duty called, she was always willing, but how much can one person give? In this episode, you’ll learn:
Why she wished General Washington had not come to Mount Vernon to visit, even though he only spent two days there during the entire war.
Why she spent nearly half of the war at camp with George and the troops.
And finally, what gave her the rough and tumble strength to successfully manage 17,000 acres and 300 slaves as a widow.
As you listen to these episodes, you’ll learn the story of an exceptional woman who gave her heart and soul to the people and the nation, despite her life ending in loss and tragedy.
