Tune in as I continue my month of Washington based shows. In this week's episode, I am talking all about our first First Lady, Martha Dandridge Custis Washington.
We all know her as the first of the firsts, but there is so much more to her story. From outliving all of her children and her two husbands, to her time spent on the fields of battle during the American Revolution, Martha was one interesting character.
