"Lady Washington," hated camplife but brought light to all.

The wealthy widow Martha Dandridge Custis, aged 27 married George Washington in 1759. For forty years, they shared a life of service to the colonies and the United States that followed.

During the dark days at Valley Forge, Martha Washington was there to support the General and the rag tag troops, who called her Lady Washington. She organized local women and sources to supply food and clothing, which were nearly important as her care and moral support. Later Martha Washington would be honored as the first First Lady of the United States.
