Mary Lincoln’s 200th Birthday Celebration
Join us as we celebrate Mary Lincoln’s 200th birthday. Mary loved throwing birthday parties for her sons, but during this party, she’ll be the one being feted. The living history, first person portrayal is titled “Mary Lincoln: Wife, Mother, Sister”. You will learn what Abraham & Mary Lincoln’s family life was really like, the sacrifices she made to be married to the President, their indulgent style of child rearing, tales of their boys escapades, and family quarrels because of the divided loyalties during the Civil War. At the end of the portrayal, audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions of the portraying Mrs. Lincoln. After the program, white almond cake (her favorite) will be served.
