Portraits of Martha Washington

Four portraits of Martha Washington record Early America’s First Lady in various stages of her life.

We see Martha as a young girl, a widow, Washington’s wife and, finally, late in life. Most of these portraits — all from our archives — are seen for the first time on the Internet.
