Interactive video lesson plan for: Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies

Activity overview:

"Remember the ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors."—Abigail Adams to John Adams: March 31, 1776

Cokie Roberts hosts this fascinating discussion of the struggles to establish a nation as seen through the eyes of our nation's first First Ladies: Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and Dolley Madison. Share their behind-the-scenes insights into the challenges faced by their husbands, as well as learn about the often overlooked contributions of these essential founding mothers.

As Martha Washington, living biographer Mary Wiseman brings 30 years of interpretive experience to highlight the life of George Washington's worthy partner. In 1997, historical interpreter Kim Hanley was inspired to research and develop her portrayal of Abigail Adams. Since 1999, professional actor and teacher Cynthia Janzen has portrayed Dolley Madison at schools, museums, and historical societies.

Cokie Roberts is a political commentator for ABC News. In addition to her appearances on the airwaves, Cokie Roberts has written several best sellers including "Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation" and "Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation."
