Purple ? (Pink if she were I...)


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - RJNorton - 08-29-2016 08:20 AM

I am sorry, Gene and Eva, but neither of your guesses is correct.


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - Susan Higginbotham - 08-29-2016 08:54 AM

Lavender?


RE: Mary Lincoln Extra Credit Questions - RJNorton - 08-29-2016 09:02 AM

I am sorry, Susan, but it was not lavender.

Mrs. Keckly said it was white, but I've seen a number of sources lately that claim it was purple.

And from the physics point of view Mrs. Keckley was wrong respectively we all should win - white isn't a color, it's the sum of all visible spectral colors (hence all our guesses are included in white...)

If it was white, I can kind of guess why. Mary Lincoln is rumored to have said she liked it when Abraham wore this.
Somehow it didn't become much of a fashion trend until the 1950's

That's quite an accomplishment Laurie, since one of the songs (Lavender Blue) is form the 17th century
