As the oldest and favorite daughter of Thomas Jefferson, Martha “Patsy” Jefferson Randolph was well educated, known on two continents for her grace and sincerity, and often assumed the duties of first lady for her widowed father.

Kierner is professor of history at George Mason University and the author of Martha Jefferson Randolph, Daughter of Monticello.
