Welcome
Like Jacqueline Kennedy, Mary Todd Lincoln was at her husband's side when an assassin struck. She never recovered from that fateful evening at Ford's Theatre on April 14, 1865. Mrs. Lincoln led a fascinating life before, during, and after her White House years. I am not an author or an historian; rather I am a former American history teacher who enjoys researching Mary Todd Lincoln's life. If you have a specific Mary Todd Lincoln question that you would like me to research for you, please e-mail me.

The Mary Todd Lincoln Research Site is intended for use by students, teachers, schools, and anyone with an interest in introductory information on Mary Lincoln.
