On this day, December 13, in 1818 Mary Todd was born in Lexington, Kentucky. Her future included marriage to the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, but it also brought many dark days beginning with the loss of her mother at age six, and eventually the death of her husband and three of her four sons. Visitors can tour her 14-room childhood home, the Mary Todd Lincoln House, where a portrait of Mary Lincoln dominates the front parlor. The home also includes many family portraits as well as furniture and other objects used by the Lincolns while living in the White House. The Mary Todd Lincoln House was the first home of a First Lady of the United States to be restored.
