Which American First Lady never cooked a meal? Which was accused of looting the White House? And though you'll probably never guess, which one was once a professional dancer? Offering a sweeping look at the lives of our First Ladies, these individual profiles include close-up details, key biographical information, a formal portrait, and additional photos. Here you'll discover remarkable facts about their childhoods, early careers, and paths to the White House, as well as the sometimes heralded yet often subtle ways in which they shaped their role and the country.
