February GM, Flora Fraser: historian and biographer of The Washingtons: George and Martha

February's General Meeting was a big success at the Wentworth Golf Club, with special speaker historian and biographer Flora Fraser, giving us a new insight into America's first Power Couple - George and Martha Washington, in her new book: The Washingtons: George and Martha. We learned fascinating details such as the fact that Martha was often with George on the battle field, and that her social skills and high ranking very much balanced out her very quiet husband who sometimes never said a word during an entire formal dinner.

Makes me think that we would have missed out on the founding leader in US history, who set the tone for the Presidency, had he had to battle the scrutiny of today's social media and television campaigning!
