Description


Did Mary Lincoln really wear flannel pajamas?

Why was Martha Washington's "dress" turned into a pincushion?

How did Julia Grant's hat show support for the Confederacy?

Did Edith Wilson really track mud onto the White House carpets?

These are some of the stories (all true) that have been told about some of the First Ladies you may have forgotten about--or never knew. The stories are either factual, actual or "metaphorical" using an item of their clothing to propel the tale.

You love their gowns at the Smithsonian; now you can love them better
