about this item

From Martha Washington to America's newest first lady, meet the forty-six exceptional women who made their mark on the White House in DK Eyewitness Books: First Ladies. See how the role of the First Lady has evolved from being a gracious hostess to encompassing humanitarian work and even policy making.

Did you know Dolley Madison rescued state documents and a painting of George Washington as British troops set the White House on fire? Filled with amazing facts, full-color photographs of personal mementos, family pictures, and campaign memorabilia, DK Eyewitness Books: First Ladies is a visual tour through US history. See Mary Todd Lincoln's mourning cape, Edith Wilson's tiara, Eleanor Roosevelt's writing desk, Pat Nixon's party favors, and more. Learn how Florence Harding, Hillary Clinton, and Michelle Obama redefined what being a First Lady meant and involved themselves in causes to create social change and new policies.

Discover which first lady is the only one to hold an honorary seat on the floor on Congress, why Jackie Kennedy won an Emmy award, and which first lady met her husband on a movie set. DK Eyewitness Books: First Ladies has a colorful reference section with infographics, facts, timelines, and information about historic places to visit.

DK Eyewitness Books: First Ladies tells the stories of our nation's first ladies and shows readers how each woman influenced the history of the United States.

Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
