Today in American History…

Today in American History…Martha Washington passed away at Mount Vernon on May 22, 1802. Mrs Washington once said, “I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.”
