The 2018 Annual Martha Washington Lecture
In observance of Women's History Month, Mount Vernon and the Washington Library welcome historians Martha Saxton and Cynthia Kierner to the David M. Rubenstein Leadership Hall on Thursday, March 29, 2018. Moderated by Mount Vernon's Senior Vice President of Historic Preservation & Collections, Carol Borchert Cadou, these scholars will discuss their groundbreaking, new research in a program titled, “Keep all matters in order your self…”: Two Women from the 18th-Century South. A cocktail reception and object viewing will follow.
This annual event was created to share new scholarship and insights into the life and times of Martha Washington and is made possible through a generous grant from the Richard S. Reynolds Foundation of Richmond, Virginia.
