PD in Your PJs: Mary Lincoln, First Lady of Controversy
December 11th, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
For the PD in Your PJs series, we invite you to come as you are, drink what you want, engage with the experts, and leave with 1.0 CPDU credit.
Join the ALPLM Team and Erika Holst, Curator of History at the Illinois State Museum, as she leads us in a close look at Mary Lincoln, perhaps the most infamous American first lady. We’ll try to get to the historical truth behind three of the biggest mysteries and controversies surrounding her: Did Lincoln and Mary marry for love? How happy was the Lincoln’s marriage? And are contemporary stories describing Mary as "insane" true?
