During Women's History month, the library will touch on an aspect of Mary Lincoln that few have seen.
After the death of her son Willie, Mary Lincoln held séances in the White House to try to contact him and other deceased relatives. Why did Mary, and many other bereaved families, believe in the spiritualist movement? What happened at these séances? Did Abraham Lincoln ever attend one? Find the answers and more through a compelling presentation by historian Valerie Gugala.
Please join us in near the fireplace on the main level to enjoy this presentation. There is no registration necessary. For more information to this free event, please contact Edith Craig.
