First lady Dolley Madison is perhaps best known as the woman who saved the White House portrait of George Washington during the War of 1812, but her influence on America's formation is much deeper. This exhibit, which inaugurates the museum's new Women’s History Gallery, explores the less-examined contributions of women alongside the traditional Founding Fathers narrative through more than 150 objects.
