presidential history

the debates & primary coverage brought to mind my first visit to Washington DC. it was the summer I was 13 & while there with my parents we saw Edith Bolling Galt Wilson lay a wreath on the statue of Rochambeau in Lafayette Square. she was the first of 8 First Ladies I've seen.

over the decades I've also seen 8 presidents -- altho not always ones wed to the same First Ladies.
