Summary
In Founding Mothers, Cokie Roberts paid homage to the women who helped establish our nation. Now she continues the story of more remarkable women and their achievements in moving the fledgling nation foward, from the election of John Adams in 1796 to the election of Andrew Jackson in 1828. Roberts reveals the often surprising and compelling stories of determined and passionate woman who courageously faced the challenges of their times and laid the groundwork for a better society, including: Rebecca Gratz, one of the most beautiful and gracious women in Philadelphia society, known as "the foremost American Jewess of her day," who devoted her life to helping the poor and the orphaned; Dolley Madison, the strong-willed woman whose bravery and insight shaped the new capital of Washington, DC, during peace and war; and Thoedosin Burr, Aaron Burr's devoted daughter, a brilliant, independent, highly educated, and freethinking woman ahead of her time who was groomed for greatness by her doting father
