Frederick County Civil War Roundtable Presentation

Ongoing Opportunities

  • April 15 at 6:30 PM

Please join ONLINE ONLY on the National Museum of Civil War Medicine's Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/nmcwm/videos. The presenter will be Mrs. Laura Keyes on the topic "Mary Lincoln's Photo Album."

Mary Todd Lincoln lived a life filled with triumphs and tragedies but few people know her story. One piece to the myriad puzzle of her life is her personal photograph album, which was compiled over many years. This precious artifact tells not only Mary Lincoln’s story, but the Lincoln Family story as well. Come to hear scholar Laura Keyes share the history of this personal item, Mary Lincoln’s photograph album, and see for yourself what photographs Mrs. Lincoln kept (and the ones she didn’t).
