This event was originally scheduled for March, but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.
The James Monroe Museum presents a conversation about the role of First Lady in the early 1800s with Elizabeth Monroe (Heidi Stello) and Dolley Madison (Katherine Spivey). Examples of subjects that will be discussed include what aspects of being First Lady did they like the most, and how their roles changed as their husbands’ political positions changed.
The conversation will be moderated by Scott Harris, Executive Director of University Museums. Questions can be submitted by the audience in writing at the event. The program will be webcast courtesy of the University of Mary Washington.
