Today’s Angry History Show episode is about the burning of the White House during the War of 1812. I was privileged to play the voice of indomitable First Lady Dolley Madison. (I kept a tall mug of Throat Coat tea nearby to regain my voice as I recovered from an obnoxious cough. We’ll say it adds character.) Read Mrs. Madison’s letter here.

I did Mary Hunter’s voice for this episode too. Eyewitness accounts are the best!
