Despite common knowledge that a U.S. First Lady is the wife of the President; the author chooses to include other women that served as hostess to the White House including daughters, daughters-in-law, nieces, sisters, and even an aunt. When I checked dictionaries I got conflicting info about the definition of First Lady. Dictonary.com defined First Lady as "the wife of the president of the U.S...." while Merriam-Webster said "the wife or hostess of the chief executive of a country or jurisdiction." I decided to settle the score by checking the White House website and although not directly defined, only wives of Presidents are listed as First Ladies.
Despite Remembering the Ladies not being what I expected I did enjoy taking a quick trip through 100 years of history through the eyes of the women of the White House.
