|DAR members presents review of historical book|
After being introduced by First Vice Regent, Mary Sue Mitchell, Dorothy Barker presented a book review of "Founding Mothers" by Cokie Roberts to Chief Tusquahoma Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution, LSDAR.
In the book, information included:
• Martha Washington was very influential in helping George Washington during the American Revolution in several ways.
• First, as one of the wealthiest women of her time, she contributed money to the cause.
She spent the winter at Valley Forge with Washington and his army.
• She organized the ladies of the area in making socks and other garments needed by the military. She was an excellent hostess and would receive anyone as long as they were properly attired.
• Abigail Adams was another First Lady that gave excellent advise to John Adams. She was constantly telling John to "remember the ladies," which he did not do.
• Unlike Martha Washington who burned all of her correspondence with her husband before her death, information and letters from Abigail is available.
• Small pox was raging in the colonies at the time and she and her family were given the live virus to protect themselves. All of the family had a light case of the disease, but they survived.
• In this book, the good, bad and ugly is presented along with facts that are well known. Cokie Roberts did an excellent job in researching the first ladies and the book is interesting reading, according to Barker. The club agreed that Barker did a splendid job with the review.
The Call to Order and Opening Ritual was conducted by Regent Gwen Clark.
Barbara Gewin read the President General's message and Mary K. Reighney read the National Defense report as well as minutes from the last meeting. The Flag moment was presented by Billie Alderman and the Indian moment and Constitution moment by Gwen Clark.
A review of the Chapter Awards from the State allowed the chapter to see what is being done well, and where more work needs to be done.
Billie Alderman and Jo Bennett were hostesses.
Members attending were Mary Reighney, Jo Bennett, Barbara Gewin, Delores Gewin, Sue Parker, Jean Downing, Fannie Oliver, Billie Alderman, Gwen Clark. and Mary Sue Mitchell.
