Mary's Bedroom

Mary Lincoln’s bedroom was her inner sanctum where she could rest during her frequent migraine headaches, and to get some privacy for washing and dressing.  However, her privacy was limited because for a time, Mary shared her room with her two youngest children, Willie and Tad, who slept on a trundle bed that pulled out from under Mary’s bed.  Once older brother Robert left for college, Willie and Tad moved into his room across the hall.
