On Mary Lincoln's 200th birthday, take a look at some of the treasures in our vault related to this fascinating first lady. The items you'll see include her diamond necklace, letter opener, rare documents and the fan she reportedly took to Ford's Theatre on the night of her husband's murder. Mrs. Lincoln herself (portrayed by Pam Brown) will be there for an interview with State Historian Samuel Wheeler.
The event is free and takes place in our library building, at 112 N. Sixth Street, Springfield.
