Martha Washington, Chautauqua History Alive Show

Martha Washington will be portrayed by Maggie Worsdale from Charleston, SC.

On the upcoming 237th anniversary of the stunning Patriot victory at the Battle of Cowpens, let us (as Abigail Adams, another Revolutionary Grande Dame, urged her husband John) – also “Remember the Ladies.”

You see, women wanted independence just as much as the men. Martha Washington has a lot to say about these other Grande Dames – their courage, what they risked, and how they influenced the outcome of the Revolution. These are stories that are begging to be told.

You’ll laugh – you’ll be amazed – you’ll have questions. And Martha Washington will answer them.
