Martha Jefferson Randolph

"Martha Jefferson Randolph" will be one of very few scholarly biographies of American women who lived before the 1830s. Daughter of President Thomas Jefferson, wife of a governor, mother of future Confederates and one future Unionist, Randolph (1772-1836) was an educated and articulate woman in her own right. My book will address key interpretive issues in early American, southern, and especially women's history and appeal to specialists and general readers by telling an engaging story and providing a window onto the lives and concerns of elite southern women and their families in a crucial transitional era. Primary research for this project has been completed. The book will be divided into eight chapters, of which one has been drafted to date. I seek NEH funding for release time from teaching during the 2009-10 academic year, during which I will produce a complete press-ready manuscript if this proposal is funded.
