About The Event
The program for TVHS will be “The Life and Times of Dolley Madison,” presented by Dale Sayers. A native Virginian, Dale is a retired elementary teacher. She graduated from James Madison University (then Madison College) with a B. S. in Early Childhood Education. However, history has always been her great academic love. She began researching her family history over 40 years ago, and has written two books (The Haynies of Northumberland and Allied Families and The Tucker Family of Campbell and Charlotte Counties). She resides with her husband at Hanover Courthouse and has two grown children and her first grandchild. Since the colonial/ revolutionary period is of special interest to Dale, she became fascinated with “America’s first First Lady,” Dolley Madison. Dolley was poised to witness historic events and personally knew all the movers and shakers of that era. Married to James Madison, an intellectual giant and the Father of the Constitution, she was his partner in both marriage and politics.
