Flora Fraser - The Washingtons: George and Martha, "Join'd by Friendship, Crown'd by Love"

Thursday, November 5, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In her sixth biography, Fraser, whose previous works have profiled such well-connected figures as Pauline Bonaparte Borghese, sister of Napoleon; the six royal daughters of King George III; and Emma, Lady Hamilton, mistress of Lord Nelson, chronicles a domestic partnership that helped set the tone for a nation. Giving equal treatment to both of this country’s founding parents, Fraser traces the mutually supportive George and Martha Washington from their courtship and life at Mount Vernon through the war years, Martha’s winter stays with her husband, and on to their creation of the roles of President and First Lady.
