Day 150, June 25

Martha Washington was not only the first First Lady; she is also the only American woman who has ever been honored on United States currency.

A picture of Martha Washington was on the face of the 1886-1891 US Dollar Silver Certificate.  She is also pictured on the back of the 1896 series dollar Silver Certificate, along with that of George Washington.
