I just finished The Lincolns in the White House by Jerrold Packard. I enjoy reading books about Lincoln but I found this book filled with many intesting facts about Mary Todd - her many tragedies in life - treatment to her by the women in the cabinet - her overspending - her temper tantums Now for Lincoln - - his depression - his poor health - his sadness with the war - his fight to abolish slavery - his secret trips to the battlefield - the loss of his sons The Civil War was going on and they still had lots of parties in the White House. Its a good read.
