Mary Todd Lincoln

Today we feature a portrait of Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of Abraham Lincoln. Mary Todd really had a tragic life. Her mother died when she was a child, and she had problems with her step mother. After marrying Abraham, they had 4 children, with three of the children dying at an early age, and only one living to be an adult. She of course was present at the tragic event of the assassination of her husband at Ford's theatre in 1865. She suffered from depression and other mental problems for the remainder of her life.
