When many historians discuss the Civil War time period they often discuss Abraham Lincoln's problems and struggles dealing with the war. But what was it like to be the first lady at this time period in history?
As our nation prepares to remember the one hundred and fifty year anniversary of the Civil War the Algoma Library Friends in partnership with the Kewaunee County Historical Society will be putting on the performance Mary Todd Lincoln: The White House Years. Rita Schiesser, the director of the Algoma Public Library explains why Mary Todd Lincoln.
While the performance is really a trip back in time the money raised will go to help support many of the activities and programs in the library system, according to Schiesser.
Mary Todd Lincoln: The White House Years will be on July 22nd at 1:30pm in the Algoma Elementary School Auditorium. Tickets are just $10.00 and can be purchased at the Algoma Public Library and at the Kewaunee County History Center in Algoma.
