Please join historian and journalist Jason Emerson as he looks at Mary's poetic connections and explain the context surrounding them. Jason Emerson is a journalist and a Lincoln historian with over 25 years of research. He has written "Mary Lincoln for the Ages," "The Madness of Mary Lincoln," "Giant in the Shadows: The Life of Robert T. Lincoln," as well as numerous articles on the Lincoln family.
Friends of the Lincoln Collection of Indiana, Inc., has launched a new website serving as an additional gateway to the thousands of digitized Lincoln era letters, photographs, newspapers, books and other items from the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection. In addition, it will soon post searchable archives from the more than 1900 issues of "Lincoln Lore," a nationally recognized magazine for scholarly articles, interviews, book reviews, and announcements of local and national Lincoln-related programs and events. The site will also offer other items of interest, including links to Collection items displayed in the Fine Book Room of the Allen County Public Library; online exhibits; dozens of viewable Lincoln presentations at the library; and educational support from resident Lincoln historians.Read More
