Today in American History…

Today in American History…Martha Washington passed away at Mount Vernon on May 22, 1802. Mrs Washington once said, โ€œI 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.โ€
