A Visit with Mrs. Lincoln
Tuesday, March 14, 2017
Mary Lincoln comes to life as presented by Valerie Gugala. She sets the historical record straight as she takes listeners through the life of a young woman born into a wealthy Lexington, Kentucky family, and the transformation she made from that life to become the wife of a young man whose background was just the opposite. Valerie takes her audience through the Lincoln family’s life in Springfield, Abraham’s political career, his election to the presidency, and their life in the White House during the Civil War.
“There are some things that Mrs. Lincoln either cannot or WILL NOT answer, that is why I especially enjoy answering questions as a historian. It is when some of the most interesting and entertaining observations are made by the audience.” -Valerie Gugala
