Author and architectural historian William Seale discussed life in the Lincoln White House and how the Lincoln family’s presence there during wartime reinforced the idea of the White House as the president’s official residence. He showed numerous slides during his presentation and then responded to questions from members of the audience.

“Life in the Lincoln White House” was a program at the 16th annual Lincoln Forum Symposium, held November 17, 2011, at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. “Lincoln and the Home Front: The Civil War Comes to Washington” was the second year of a five-year focus on the Civil War sesquicentennial. close
