Summary
Writing for undergraduate students, Allgor (history, U. of California Riverside) offers a biography of first lady Dolley Madison that focuses on her role in fostering US national unity and identity. Allgor illustrates how her actions and what people said about them show her and her husband's commitment to unity, tracing their journey to Washington; their background and relationship; her contributions during his years as Secretary of State; how she interacted with the diplomatic corps; her renovation of the White House; her use of the drawing room to hold events and gatherings; her public persona, charm, and empathy; her role in the War of 1812; her work for Unity Under Fire; and the legacy of the Madisons.
