Abigail Adams, in a letter to John Adams dated March 31, 1776, exhorted him to "Remember the Ladies."  In celebration of March as Women's History Month, join Joel Farkas, volunteer docent at Washington's Headquarters in Morristown, to "remember the ladies" of the Revolutionary War.  Mr. Farkas will discuss what it was like to be a woman at that time, health and medicine for women in Colonial times, our country's "First Ladies" - women who made a difference - and myths about well-known women such as Betsy Ross.
