History professor Stephen Berry talked about the relationships of President Abraham Lincoln and the Todd family - the 13 brothers and sisters of first lady Mary Todd Lincoln. Originally from Kentucky, the Todds had members in both the North and South and backed both the Union and the Confederacy. After a presentation illustrated by photographs, he responded to questions from members of the audience.

“The Todd Family at War with Themselves” 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
