Mary Todd Lincoln – “A Widow Forgotten”
Celebrate the month of February, American Heart Month, Valentine’s Day, and of course, the birthdays of President Lincoln, February 12, and President George Washington, February 22. In honor of President Lincoln’s wife, the Senior Center and SAIL present Jessica Michna, historical impersonator from First Impressions, as Mary Todd Lincoln.
Mrs. Lincoln’s life has come full circle as she returns to Springfield, Illinois to take up residence with her sister Elizabeth. She recalls the days of her girlhood in the genteel society of Lexington, Kentucky, her marriage to the gangly young lawyer, and eventually her rise to become the First Lady.
Join her on Tuesday, February 24 at 1:30 pm. Co-sponsored by SAIL, Supporting Active Independent Lives, a vibrant non-profit membership organization of people 55+ who reside in the Dane County area. Refreshments will be served. Call the Senior Center to register at 266-6581 or visit MadisonSeniorCenter.org
