Mort Kunstler February 2017 Civil War Calendar: Lincoln, the Family Man

Always a poignant scene each month and done with a lot of research.

LINCOLN, THE FAMILY MAN

"Although he was a well paid Illinois attorney when he ran for president, Abraham Lincoln had been born in backwoods poverty.  Perhaps remembering his deprived boyhood, Lincoln was an indulgent husband and father.

"In the White House, Mrs. Lincoln enjoyed an extensive wardrobe and the Lincoln boys were free to romp and roam.  Tragically, of the Lincolns' four sons, only Robert Todd survived to adulthood."

--Old Secesh
