Dolley Madison was the wife of President James Madison. Mrs. Madison served as hostess at the White House for 16 years, during the term of widowed President Thomas Jefferson, and then during her husband's administration. When British troops sacked Washington, D.C. in 1814 she rescued Gilbert Stuart's painting of George Washington from the burning White House.
