Raised in a slave-holding family, Mary Todd Lincoln evolved into an advocate for abolition. She spoke her mind openly in an era when a woman’s success in life was measured by marriage and motherhood.
Against her family’s wishes, she married the man she loved and partnered with him to achieve their goal of becoming president and first lady.
Mummey as Mary Lincoln shares stories of their life and love, triumphs and challenges; and life in the White House during the tumultuous years of the Civil War. Mummey is an award-winning lifetime member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters.
