Mary Todd Lincoln: An Unconventional Woman
Born of an aristocratic family in Lexington, KY, against her family’s wishes, Mary Todd married Abraham Lincoln, the man she loved. She partnered with him to achieve their goal of becoming president and first lady.
Through the use of authentically reproduced clothing, lectures, storytelling and informal, spontaneous dialog, Chautauquan Sally Mummey will bring Mrs. Lincoln to life Wednesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. at Taylor Community’s Woodside Building.
Mummey portrays a lively, accurate and well-researched Mary Todd Lincoln, showing the many facets of this unconventional modern woman of the 1860’s who was perhaps the most misunderstood of her time.
The event – which will appeal to audiences of all ages – is free and open to the public; however, those planning to attend must pre-register as seating is limited. Please call 524-5600 for reservations.
