During her husband’s term, right in the middle of the War of 1812 as the British were making their way to torch the capital, Dolley Madison famously saved the portrait of General George Washington from defacement by British soldiers. As she accounts the event: “… I insist on waiting until the large picture of Gen. Washington is secured, and it requires to be unscrewed from the wall. This process was found too tedious for these perilous moments; I have order the frame to be broken, and the canvass taken out it is done, and the precious portrait placed in the hands of two gentlemen of New York, for safe keeping.” The Reverse image beautifully depicts her patriotism in the face of danger.
