“Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon”
Wednesday, April 19th at 7:00 p.m.
Library Community Room
Free and Open to the Public
From her website : “Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon takes place in her Blue Room on April 4th, 1865. Mr. Lincoln and their youngest son Tad are at City Point, Robert, their eldest, is with General Grant in pursuit of Robert E Lee and Mary is alone in the Executive Mansion. The audience is invited to reminisce with Mrs. Lincoln about her childhood, her days in Springfield and her children as she celebrates Tad’s 12th birthday, and the end of the Civil War. Drawing from her own letters to friends, family and political figures of the era, Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon paints a picture of Mary Lincoln that is both sympathetic and truthful.”
