The Galena – Jo Daviess County Historical Society’s first program in its winter lecture series, “Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon”, will be performed by professional actress, Debra Ann Miller.

The audience is invited to reminisce with Mrs. Lincoln about her childhood, her children and days in Springfield as she celebrates Tad’s 12th birthday, and the end of the Civil War.

Drawing from her own letters to friends, family and political figures of the era, Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon is a 45-minute performance that paints a picture of Mary Lincoln that is both sympathetic and truthful.
