Mary Todd Lincoln: A Widow Forgotten

Location

Meeting Rooms A & B
Mary Todd Lincoln Program
Friends of the Marion Library are pleased to present historical impersonator Jessica Michna (First Impressions by Jessica Michna) as Mary Todd Lincoln in a timely program celebrating President Lincoln's birthday. You'll gain a new perspective on Mrs. Lincoln and her life as you listen to Jessica's portrayal. 
 
Mrs. Lincoln’s life has come full circle as she returns to Springfield, Illinois to take up residence with her sister Elizabeth. She recalls the days of her girlhood in the genteel society of Lexington, Kentucky, her marriage to the gangly young lawyer, and eventually her rise to become the First Lady. Share in her excitement as she first sees the Executive Mansion. Share in her grief as she loses three of her sons and her beloved husband.
 
(Bad weather date for this program is March 9.)
