Twice each Wednesday from January 8 through March 11, our interpreters will lead you in a discussion of Mary’s crucial contributions to Lincoln’s political career and her influence during the White House years. You’ll also learn about the losses she had to endure throughout her life and how those losses contributed to Mary’s behavior – especially in her later years. Was she insane?
