Martha Washington visits Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century

Martha Washington, portrayed by historical interpreter Lee Ann Rose, paid a visit to the Reverend James Blair Chapter of the National Society Colonial Dames Seventeenth Century at the September 14 meeting held at Ford's Colony Country Club. The Dames learned about the difficult choices and circumstances colonial women faced in Ms. Rose's "Sentiments of an American Woman" as the colonists prepared and took part in the American Revolution. The Society's object is to aid in the preservation of historical records and sites and foster interest and education in colonial research.
