In honor of Women’s History Month, Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site will hold its annual program, The General’s Lady, on Sunday, March 21st at 2:00pm. This year, to keep “Covid Safe,” it will be VIRTUAL!
Inspired by Martha Washington, this free on-line event, pays tribute to both the impact of noteworthy historical women, and to contemporary women making a difference in the field of history and preservation in the Hudson Valley.
The General’s Lady will begin with a talk, “Martha Washington: A Timeless Woman,” to learn more about our first First Lady. This talk will be followed by the ceremony to present the 2021 Martha Washington Woman of History Award. This year’s honoree is historical archivist/librarian Sue Gardner. Ms. Gardner is the nineteenth recipient of the award.
The free online event can be accessed by searching YouTube for “Palisades Interstate Park Commission Television” at and after Sunday, March 21st at 2pm. For further details please call the site at 845-562-1195.
