Mary Todd Lincoln lived a life filled with triumphs and tragedies but few people know her story.  Now, actress Laura Keyes shares Mary’s story in an entertaining and educational program entitled “Mrs. Lincoln in Love”, which is set on January 31st 1862, when Mrs. Lincoln and her family are settled comfortably in the Executive Mansion.  Visiting with ladies during Afternoon Tea, Mrs. Lincoln reflects on the Loves of her Life-her children, her husband, and her country.  She even shares some of Mr. Lincoln’s love letters to her!  Learn how Mary’s knowledge of both politics and social customs made it possible for a backwoods frontier attorney to achieve the highest office in the land.

Limited seating available, get your tickets early!

Tickets $15.00 or $12.00 for current H.A.P. Members.  This is a fundraiser for the Princeville Heritage Museum.
