Here is "Dolley Madison" who is carrying around 2 handkerchiefs - one for show, the other for "business". She is wearing one of her famous turbans.
Another highlight of the meeting was the gift of an 1812-era sword from the Illinois Society of 1812 (the men's group). They gave it to the Illinois Daughters for presentation to the 1812 museum in Washington, DC.
