Shrewsbury: Historical Society Presents “The First Ladies”

January 25, 2012

| Free

At 7 p.m., the Shrewsbury Historical Society will present “The First Ladies” with speaker Patricia Perry. The presentation will take place at the 1830 Brick Schoolhouse on Church Road in Shrewsbury. Although it is the President of the United States who runs for office, his wife also becomes a very public figure, often times, to her dismay. Many a First Lady has shed a tear or two upon learning of her husband's election victory. This show looks at the personal trials, triumphs and private details of our very public First Ladies, focusing on First Ladies Martha Washington to Frances Clara Cleveland. Free and open to the public.
