Seward ?


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Thomas Kearney - 01-15-2016 02:05 PM

I'll go with either Edwin Stanton, US Grant, or Ned Flanders.

Good try, Thomas, but the kudos go to Gene! It was Seward.

You win one dress for Joy made by Elizabeth Keckly.

Ah well! A late charge never hurt anybody!

Her most flowery reference to Seward IMO is that of a "dirty abolition sneak".


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - RJNorton - 01-16-2016 06:51 AM

Elizabeth Keckly also reported that Mary Lincoln told her husband:

"He's a demagogue, and if you place him in power, Mr. Lincoln, mark my words, you will rue it some day."

Whom was Mary referring to?


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Eva Elisabeth - 01-16-2016 07:14 AM

Seward again?


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - RJNorton - 01-16-2016 07:26 AM

Good try, Eva, but this one was not directed at Seward.


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Gene C - 01-16-2016 09:26 AM

Chase ?


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - RJNorton - 01-16-2016 09:43 AM

Good try, Gene, but this comment was not directed at Chase.


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Wild Bill - 01-16-2016 11:02 AM

Andrew Johnson


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - RJNorton - 01-16-2016 11:18 AM

Brilliant, Bill. This is what Elizabeth Keckly reported Mary told Abraham when she learned he was going to appoint Johnson as Military Governor of Tennessee.

You and wife win two free passes to the Andrew Johnson House in Greeneville, TN.

Let's try one more. This is another quote from Mary Lincoln as reported by Elizabeth Keckly.

Mary said of this man: "He's a humbug."

Whom was Mary referring to?


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Gene C - 01-16-2016 07:39 PM

Simon Cameron ?
He kinda looks like Ebenezer Scrooge


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Eva Elisabeth - 01-16-2016 08:34 PM

Napoleon? (I.e. McClellan?)
