rebroadcast from April 27, 2013

Have you ever wished you could step back in time and have a conversation with someone from the past?... Perhaps family… an old friend… or maybe even someone who just inspires you.

Thanks to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in Virginia I get the chance to do just that.

Plus, a special visit from the original First Lady herself… and her role during the Revolutionary War.
