Born to a wealthy Southern family in 1818, a young Mary Ann Todd could not have predicted that her family would be thrust into the front of one of the most tumultuous times in American History: where brother fought brother—The Civil War. Raised in a prosperous Southern household, Mary Todd received an outstanding education, and gained a love for politics, something that would help her and her husband in his political roles, from her father’s close friendship with Henry Clay, a political leader in Kentucky. While staying with her married sister in Springfield, Illinois, where Mary was popular amongst the gentry for being witty and sociable; she met an older lawyer, and fellow Whig: Abraham Lincoln. After a fairly turbulent engagement, in which Lincoln had canceled once, they married on November 4, 1842. With Mary’s help, Lincoln was able to work hard at climbing the political ladder, and in 1861 he was elected President. Lady Lincoln, through her husband’s time in office, struggled to be both First Lady, and family member to her sister’s husbands and brother’s who served in the Confederate Army. Distrusted by the North, and considered a traitor by the South; Mary Todd Lincoln was a pillar of strength for the Commander in Chief during America’s most chaotic time.
