Mary Lincoln remains an interesting and somewhat mysterious figure, and there seems to be an inexhaustible appetite for anything Lincoln-related (awkwardly referred to as Lincolniana). Researching her, and the Civil War era generally, has become a hobby of mine. I have too many unorganized tidbits of information cluttering my brain, and am eager to get them out into the wild, where they might lead to research and new finds. Questions and comments are always welcome!

Believe it or not, there’s a lot of unpublished Lincoln-related information out there. Historical newspaper sites have really upped the game, but many archives have just never been fully delved into. This newsletter focuses on Mary Lincoln, because she was the subject of my initial research, but much of what I will post has wider interest.
