Taking the White House Beyond Expectations
At some point in your education, you were probably asked to memorize a list of American presidents. But how much have you learned about their wives?
The FLOTUS has the eyes of the nation on her, as she fulfills her duties as wife-in-chief, but is usually promptly forgotten.
Feisty First Ladies has details and anecdotes about the First Ladies that will shock and surprise you. You’ve probably heard that Mary Todd Lincoln was “eccentric,” but did you know Julia Gardiner Tyler jokingly called herself "Queen of America" and would greet visiting dignitaries with a crown and a contingent of handmaidens?
There is so much entertaining trivia, and inspiring activism in the history of First Ladies, that it’s practically your patriotic duty to learn more.
