Martha Washington served as the nation's first first lady and spent about half of the Revolutionary War at the front. She helped manage and run her husbands' estates. She raised her children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; and for almost 40 years she was George Washington's "worthy partner."
In honor of her birthday, wish the former First Lady a happy birthday at her beloved home! Lady Washington will greet guests and pose for photos on the Mansion’s piazza.
