Of the early First Ladies in the United States, Dolley Madison, wife of James Madison, fourth President of the United States, has been considered the most colorful. In her eight years in Washington, D.C.  (1809-1817), she made the President's Mansion a delightful place to visit. Dolley Madison Remember Friends and Foes is the first program in what I hope will be a series of topics. Dolley Madison met 12 American Presidents and their wives, inventors, politicians and visiting European royalty. She helped lay the cornerstone of the Washington Monument, was threatened by the invading British in 1812, and was accused of having not one, but two affairs. You will hear her personal memories of George Washington, Francis Scott Key and more. America's living legend, Dolley Madison will regale you with little known stories of the famous and in the infamous.
