Pottsboro, Texas - Come hear First Lady Martha Washington's reminiscences at the Preston Trail NSDAR Meeting at 6:00 p.m. on March 7, 2019.  Representing Martha Washington in period dress will be Preston Trail chapter member Margaret Alverson.

‘Martha Washington’ will speak about her parents and family, her first marriage and children, and why she married George Washington.  She will describe her love of beautiful clothes, her own wedding dress, and how she is remembered in my drab grey dress.  She speaks about the war and the part she played in it.  She touches on life after George became President and his death.

The next meeting for the chapter will be Thursday, April 4, 2019 with a program entitled a Colonial Style Show by Carolyn Schiewe, Director of District II TXDAR.  Be sure to include this on your calendar.
