About this show

Edith Bolling Galt Wilson was the second wife of President Woodrow Wilson, marrying him shortly after the death of his first wife. She was known as "the Secret President" because in 1919 the President had a stroke that left him partially paralyzed and severely disabled. The Galt Regency tells the compelling story of Mrs. Wilson during Mr. Wilson's prolonged illness, when she very strictly controlled access to the President, decided which if any government matters should be presented to him, and kept even his closest advisors away from her husband and in the dark about the severity of his condition. The actions of this strong and formidable woman left those close to the President wondering who indeed was running the country.
