For as rough of a guy as Andy Jack was, it seems like he really cared about his wife, Rachel. She had a hard life, and a tragic end.

We're going to talk about her, as well as the ladies who took on the mantle of First Lady during Andy Jack's Presidency.

Every First Lady has a story, but we have very little information about Elizabeth Monroe. Fortunately, the stuff we do have is really interesting!

Thanks for checking out our series on the First Ladies!
