Week 26: Martha Washington

“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.”

—Martha Washington

The first “First Lady of the
United States” accompanied
her husband on the battlefield
and was instrumental
in maintaining troop morale
during the infamous winter
at Valley Forge.
