We know the stories of our Founding Fathers, but what about the Founding Mothers who worked right alongside them to implement the Constitution “on the ground”? Join us for an in-depth tour of our new exhibition Saving Washington, led by one of our curator-trained docents. The untold stories of women of the early republic—and in particular First Lady Dolley Madison—come to life through artworks, books, documents, clothing, jewelry, and housewares, as well as immersive interactive digital experiences, on this illuminating exhibition tour.
