The actual building is named after a France-Italy region .
I just have to correct this - it's French and Switzerland...not Italy.
A great question though!

Oh - and happy holidays to everyone!!

I second Eva!

Happy holidays! On this Christmas Eve I thought this would be a good "Who and Where" trivia question.

On Christmas Eve 1860 Lincoln paid a visit to someone. Who was that someone and where did the visit take place.
NO GOOGLING!


RE: Where Is It? - Susan Higginbotham - 12-24-2020 11:24 PM

His stepmother?


RE: Where Is It? - RJNorton - 12-25-2020 04:52 AM

No idea, but I think the visit to his stepmother was later (within a few weeks of when he departed Springfield for Washington).

Wild guess: Hannah Armstrong.

Sorry for the delay. Good guesses Susan and Roger but not correct.

This is someone Lincoln had a long friendship with in spite of some rivalries.
The visit took place in Springfield.


RE: Where Is It? - Susan Higginbotham - 12-25-2020 04:52 PM

Stephen Douglas?


RE: Where Is It? - RJNorton - 12-25-2020 05:00 PM

Perhaps Edward Dickinson Baker?


RE: Where Is It? - Anita - 12-25-2020 05:24 PM

Yes Roger! Do you know where the visit took place?


RE: Where Is It? - RJNorton - 12-26-2020 04:54 AM

I have no idea, but I'll guess Baker's home.


RE: Where Is It? - Anita - 12-26-2020 12:18 PM

Roger, it was at the home of James Matheny and his wife Maria. Your correct guess of Baker wins you a Christmas pudding delivered next Christmas Eve 2021.

“On Christmas Eve, 1860, Baker arrived in Springfield to visit his step-daughter, Maria. Violating protocol, Mr. Lincoln went to the home of Maria and her husband, James Matheny. He walked in without bothering to knock. Greeting the new senator from Oregon, President-elect Lincoln said he ‘would rather see Baker elected Senator than any man alive.'” wrote Baker’s biographers, Harry C. Blair and Rebecca Tarshis.12 http://www.mrlincolnandfriends.org/members-of-congress/edward-baker/
