Pop Quiz: First Lady Facts


Happy Presidents’ Day!

Today is a day to celebrate the men who have occupied the Oval Office. Politics aside, we think there’s one thing we can all agree on … that no matter who it is taking the oath on Inauguration Day, there will always be a strong woman standing next to him. These women, the First Lady’s of the United States, didn’t just act as a supportive force as their husbands shouldered the country, both in good times and bad, they took on social issues, charities and, in some cases, even acted as Secretary.
