This lecture by Kristi Gross, Education Assistant & Researcher at Riversdale House Museum, will examine the connections between the Calverts of Riversdale and the Peters of Tudor Place. Archival letters and images will illuminate a relationship that linked the high society of Georgetown and Maryland. Martha was born only two months after her “Aunt Calvert,” and these documents reveal a rich portrait of nineteenth-century feminine gentility, spiced with tongue-in-cheek commentary from witty Rosalie. Explore how two families navigated both international and intimate crises, including the War of 1812 and Rosalie’s death at age 42, with her devoted niece Martha at her bedside.
