This short volume is a collection of excerpts from newspapers, magazines and other sources discussing the life and times of Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of 16th U.S. President, Abraham Lincoln. While Mary Todd led a life of tragedy—her son and husband dying early in life—she is ultimately known as one of the most supportive First Ladies, guiding her husband through one of the most difficult conflicts in American history.
