review ☆ Mrs Lincoln and Mrs Keckly The Remarkable Story of the Friendship Between a First Lady and a Former Slave A vibrant social history set against the backdrop of the Antebellum south and the Civil War that recreates the lives and friendship of two exceptional women First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln and her mulatto dressmaker Elizabeth Keckly I consider you my best living friend Mary Lincoln wrote to Elizabeth Keckly in 1867 and indeed theirs was a close if tumultuous relationship Born into slavery mulatto Elizabeth Keckly was Mary Lincoln's dressmaker confidante and mainstay during the difficult years that the Lincolns occupied the White House and the early years of Mary's widowhood But she was a fascinating woman in her own right independent and already well established as the dressmaker to the Washington elite when she was first hired by Mary Lincoln upon her arrival in the nation's capital Lizzy had bought her freedom in 1855 and come to Washington determined to make a life for hers. I don t know if I just wasn t in the mood to read this or if it got bogged down in the details and I got bored with it I was so looking forward to reading this and it disapointed me

review ☆ Mrs Lincoln and Mrs Keckly The Remarkable Story of the Friendship Between a First Lady and a Former Slave Orge such an unlikely bond at a time when relations between blacks and whites were tearing the nation apart Beginning with their respective childhoods in the slaveholding states of Virginia and Kentucky their story takes us through the years of tragic Civil War the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the early Reconstruction period An author in her own right Keckly wrote one of the most detailed biographies of Mary Lincoln ever published and though it led to a bitter feud between the friends it is one of the many rich resources that have enhanced Fleischner's trove of original findingsA remarkable riveting work of scholarship that reveals the legacy of slavery and sheds new light on the Lincoln White House Mrs Lincoln and Mrs Keckly brings to life a mesmerizing intimate aspect of Civil War history and underscores the inseparability of black and white in our nation's herita. I bought this book upon visiting the Mary Todd Lincoln childhood home in Lexington KY along with my aunt and mother I ve also visited the Farmington home of Joshua Speed Abraham Lincoln
