Program Description

Event Details

Since her death, her image as a “hellcat” and an unmanageable wife has become part of the American consciousness. But is this the true story of Mary Lincoln, the wife of America’s greatest President? She comes to life as presented by Valerie Gugala. Mrs. Lincoln takes the audience through the Lincoln family’s life in Springfield, Abraham’s political career and election to the presidency, and their life in the White House during the Civil War.
