At this Lunch & Learn we shared our midday meal with President and Mrs. Abraham Lincoln. President Lincoln discussed the progress and pressure of putting down the rebellion in the war between the states from what amounts to a southern city - Washington, DC. Mrs. Lincoln told of the stress and hardship that fell upon her and the Lincoln family in the Executive Mansion during the terrible time of the American Civil War.
