The Lincoln Museum in Fort Wayne, Indiana opened to the
public in 1931. Their website is very interesting but not to be confused with
the new Lincoln museum in Springfield, Illinois.

DearMYRTLE,I believe the web site listed in your recent email message about the
Lincoln Library was about two different libraries. The address you listed was
for the museum in Ft. Wayne, Ind. The new library and museum just dedicated in
Springfield, Ill. is:
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum
Enjoy your emails with the ideas and suggestions.

You'll want to check out the Lincoln Museum dedicated today in Springfield, Illinois. The website is
From the Lincoln family album we read "Mary Todd was ambitious, politically sophisticated, and well educated. After she married Abraham Lincoln in 1842, the couple had four boys (one of whom died in 1850 at the age of three). Their marriage was tempestuous, due to her temper and his carelessness in domestic matters, but generally successful.
For the first year after the Lincoln family moved to Washington in 1861, Mary reveled in her role as First Lady, although she outran her financial resources managing the White House. Tragedy struck in February 1862, when her favorite son Willie died at the age of eleven."
There is much to be experienced by visiting the website. I believe the museum folks did an excellent job of attempting to translate the museum experience into an informational website.
Happy family tree climbing!
