When the roar of the Revolution had finally died down, a new generation of American politicians was summoned to the Potomac to assemble the nationís newly minted capital. Into that unsteady atmosphere, Dolley Madison arrived alongside her husband James. She quickly mastered the social and political intricacies of the city, and by her death in 1849 was the most celebrated person in Washington. Join us as Catherine Allgor presents an illuminating portrait of an unsung founder of our democracy and a vivid account of a little-explored time in our history. Book signing will follow talk.
