A new C-SPAN series on our country's first ladies is being promoted by bus. University of Virginia students and faculty could climb on the program's red bus Friday - parked outside of Clark Hall - to learn more about "First Ladies - Influence and Image."
The series started Monday and aims to profile each first lady from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama. The bus will also visit several different historic sites.
"One of the things we're trying to do this week is to showcase some of the historic sites in Virginia that are close to Washington D.C. We had the bus in D.C. so we tried to set up a nice week here not only to visit the historic sites but showcase our programming on the universities," said C-SPAN marketing representative Chris DeManche.
People can check out interactive features on the bus, including touchscreen kiosks with quizzes and facts. The bus will be at Montpelier on Saturday.
