Martha Custis and George Washington

George Washington's Marriage to Martha Custis

This is a wonderful illustration showing George Washington in a more tender moment . . . his marriage to Martha Custis. Martha was a young widow, who had been married to Daniel Parke Custis, son of the King's Council for Virginia. She had two children, and a considerable estate from her former husband. Upon marriage, the family moved to, and remained at Mount Vernon.
