U.S. First Ladies
The United States has had some pretty amazing First Ladies. Can you guess all the right answers?
#1 During my husband's tumultuous term, I was called a traitor by Southerners because of my abolitionist beliefs and I was suspected of treason by Northerners because of my upbringing in Kentucky.
#2 I shook up the role of First Lady by holding press conferences, traveling the country giving speeches and radio lectures, and writing a syndicated newspaper column entitled "My Day".
#3 I devoted my time as First Lady to restoring and preserving the historic value of the White House. I created the position of White House Curator to protect my work for the future.
#4 As First Lady, I sat in on cabinet meetings and major briefings, represented the Chief Executive at ceremonial occasions, served as his emissary to Latin America, and sought to bring attention to the arts, mental health problems, and the elderly.
#5 This driven First Lady can count to her credit degrees from both Wellesley College and Yale Law as well as a Grammy Award for the recording of her book "It Takes a Village and Other Lessons Children Teach Us".
#6 Prior to my term as First Lady, I actively promoted the Girl Scout movement, even serving as its President for a time, and my support continued into my term in the White House.
#7 I am the first First Lady to be wife to one President and mother to another.
#8 My husband (who affectionately called me Duchess) and I kept a busy social calendar while in office. It included poker nights in the White House library, where we served liquor even though the 18th Amendment still made it illegal.
#9 I appeared in 11 movies before giving up my acting career to marry my husband and become the wife and mother I wanted to be.
#10 My time as First Lady is most remembered for the valiant three months spent in limbo, waiting to see if my husband would survive the assassin's bullet. In the end, he did not.
