If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to visit with a historical figure, join us on Tuesday, April 22 at 1pm for Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon & TeaHistorical impersonator, Debra Ann Miller, takes us back to Mrs. Lincoln’s “blue room” in April 1865.  Mr. Lincoln and their youngest son, Tad, are at City Point; Robert, their eldest, is with General Grant in pursuit of Robert E Lee; and Mary is alone in the Executive Mansion.  The audience is invited to reminisce with Mrs. Lincoln about her childhood, her days in Springfield and her children as she celebrates Tad's 12th birthday and the end of the Civil War. Drawing from Mary Todd Lincoln’s own letters to friends, family and political figures of the era, “Mrs. Lincoln's Salon” paints a picture of Mary Lincoln that is both sympathetic and accurate. 

 

The Tea is hosted by the Princeville Heritage Museum and the Lillie M. Evans Library and will take place at the MuseumThere is no charge for this program but seating is limited so please contact the Museum at 385-1916 for reservations.  This is the third program offered during the Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War exhibit.  The last program in the series will be on April 29th 6:30pm 30pm when Jeanne Schultz Angel presents the Anti-Slavery Movement in Black & White.
