The fascinating stories of some of Florida’s most memorable First Ladies, from the territorial period to today, and their impact on the Sunshine State. Meet women such as Rachel Donelson, who moved with her second husband, Andrew Jackson, to territorial Florida in 1821; and Martha Starke Peay Perry, who witnessed the rise of secession at the dawn of the Civil War.

Peggy Macdonald is an historian and author of Marjorie Harris Carr: Defender of Florida’s Environment, as well as a writer for Gainesville Magazine, Our Town Magazine, and Senior Times Magazine.
