Dark ringlets of curls and a pretty oval face reflecting integrity and charm were the endearing features of Sarah Childress Polk wife and First Lady of President James K Polk who served from 1844 to 1848 during America's era of expansionist Manifest Destiny. She was one of the first truly politically important First Ladies of America because she acted as her husband's main political adviser, close confidante and personal secretary, and was blessed with a sound acumen and moral uprightness. Both in her domestic charm and political acumen, Sarah Childress Polk became a role model for future First Ladies to follow both in strength of character and political performance.

Review:

Sarah Childress Polk, First Lady of Tennessee and Washington by Dr. Barbara Bennett Peterson was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Biography for 2003. It was also nominated for the Albert J. Beveridge Award in American History from the American Historical Association for 2003.

Sarah Childress Polk, First Lady of Tennessee and Washington was nominated for the Albert J. Beveridge Award presented by the American Historical Association in 2003. This is an important book on the contribution of a first lady working first in the governor's mansion and later the White House. Mrs. Polk was a most intelligent confidante to her husband who often consulted her on matters of state. She was widely read, cataloged and researched newspaper articles for her husband to read,  and acted on President's Polk's behalf in diplomatic circles. Mrs. Polk is representative of the multitudes of American women who have made vast contributions to their husband's success. Intelligent and vivacious she created a vital role for American First Ladies.
