Abraham Lincoln had his share of political challenges throughout his adult life, but his personal life was just as difficult. Some of his contemporaries witnessed the emotional turmoil he experienced in his relationships with women. Two of them left him in a state of severe depression, which bordered on suicide. This year’s lectures will focus on his premarital relationships, with a special emphasis on his marriage to Mary Todd, which many people described as a burning, scorching hell on earth. Come and find out how Lincoln navigated through the dark hallways of love and romance.
