Learn how she saved President George Washington’s portrait during the War of 1812.

Dolley was bold. She was different. Discover why everyone loved her and how she made a difference in American history.


“Thank you for your marvelous portrayal of Dolley Madison. It was so gratifying to watch the murmurs and laughter through the audience as they learned unexpected tidbits about her, and to hear them rave about the program as they left. Hosting you is always a pleasure, and I appreciate your prompt professional communications, and your delightful performances.”
