“An Intimate Conspiracy”

This is the second part of our three-part Mary Lincoln trilogy. Nearing the end of her life, Mary Lincoln was ill in mind, body and soul.

She wandered endlessly, always seeking comfort and Solace. At what seemed to be the lowest point in her life she would suffer the ultimate betrayal, at the hands of her son, Robert.

This is the story of her insanity trial, commitment and the eventual reversal of the court order leading to her release.
