  • Slide 8 - In their first year of marriage the Lincolns had their first child, Robert Todd, who was born on August 1, 1843. Abraham was gone much of the time, leaving Mary to run the household and take care of Robert.

  • Slide 9 - Robert Todd Lincoln died in 1926 at the age of 82. He was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Robert served as U.S. Secretary of War under two presidents, and then as Minister to Great Britain. He was named as president of the Pullman Company in Chicago, Illinois, when George Pullman died. In 1868 he married Mary Eunice Harlan, and they had three children.
  • Slide 10 - The next child to be born was Edward Baker Lincoln, on March 10, 1846. Eddie loved all animals. He was described as a an “affectionate and delightful boy.” Abraham was reported to be an active father who did not believe in corporal punishment. Eddie at 3 years Eddie died 2 months short of his 4th birthday. He was thought to have contracted tuberculosis.
  • Slide 11 - William (Willie) Wallace Lincoln was the 3rd son of Abraham and Mary. Born on December 21, 1850, Willie was described as being “the most lovable boy I ever knew, bright, sensible, sweet-tempered…”
  • Slide 12 - Willie loved to learn. He also loved animals and war-related game. He like to accompany his father when he (Abraham) was reviewing the troops. Late in 1861 or early 1862, Willie became ill. He died on February 20, 1862. Lincoln said”…He was too good for this earth…we loved him so.”
  • Slide 13 - The last child to be born was also a boy, Thomas (Tad) Lincoln – April 4, 1853. Tad was very active, and very emotional. He spoke with a lisp and was thought to have had a cleft palate. He was unpredictable and enjoyed playing pranks on people who visited the White House.
  • Slide 14 - From A. Lincoln to Mary Todd Lincoln: The draft will go to you. Tell Tad the goats and father are very well – especially the goats (April 28, 1864) This was a response to Mary, who was in New York City: She had asked for $50.00. In 1868 Tad traveled to Europe with his mother. They stayed there for over two years. Tad attended boarding school in Germany, and then had a tutor when they moved to London. Mary and Tad returned to Chicago in May, 1871. Tad had caught a cold on the trip and arrived ill. By July, he was dangerously ill. He died July 15, 1871 as a result of infection. He was 18 years old. The cause of death was thought to be tuberculosis.
  • Slide 15 - Historians seem to differ on what kind of marriage the Lincolns had. Was Abe a good husband? Only Mary can answer that question. When Abraham died, she was devastated. Was Abe a good father? He doted on his children. Some say he was too lenient and let the younger boys run wild. Unlike his own childhood, Abraham made sure that his children actually experienced and enjoyed childhood. “It is my pleasure that my children are free and happy, and unrestrained by parental tyranny. Love is the chain whereby to bind a child to its parents.” A. Lincoln
