Martha Washington (1731-1802) was one fascinating woman. At a time when wives
were expected to obey and admire their husbands, she flatly refused to
attend George Washington's inauguration. After years of following him
wherever he went during the long battle for America's break from England,
she just wanted George and herself to spend the rest of their lives together
quietly and privately. It was not to be. Though she came good and played the
role of the President's wife loyally after that great occasion, she most
definitely dug her heels in at attending his inauguration. Martha was
outspoken but dignified, wealthy in her own right, had a good business head
on her shoulders (she ran five plantations after the death of her first
husband), and had two surviving children from her first marriage when she
married George. It appeared to be a happy partnership, with General
Lafayette recording in his notes that Martha loved George "madly". Though
unable to free the hundred slaves she had inherited from her first husband
under the terms of his will, she was happy to release Washington's numerous
slaves when he passed away. Paintings of this first of the First Ladies do
not do Martha Washington justice, in fact they seem to have endowed her with
a man's face, but it has been recorded in many first hand accounts from the
time of her youth, and as she aged, that she was considered "pretty" by all
who knew her. She was also elegant, musical, cultured and charming. In
short, the perfect wife, and match, for the first of America's long line of
-“Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at
all.” – Harriet Van Horne
