On this episode of Pay-Per-HAP, we meet Catharine "Caty" Littlefield Greene, a woman raised in the Rhode Island Colony, who comes of age as the "world turns upside down" during an American Rebellion. Lady Caty marries Nathanael Greene long before he was appointed to the rank of General; a decision that led to a life of adventure, peril, and excitement; perfectly suiting Caty's quick-witted personality. As a General's Wife, Lady Caty is responsible for the morale of the subordinate officers in her husband's employ. Society dictates that she learn the skills of a Gentlewoman and Caty has no better teacher than Mrs. Martha Washington. In spite of pregnancy, separation, inexorable winter encampments, and travel across the whole of Colonial America; all in pursuit of a grand ideal-LIBERTY, Lady Caty's unique experience has rarely been shared-- until now!
