This c. 1861 painting shows the Lincolns and their three sons.* (Their second son, Edward, had died in 1850, missing his fourth birthday by just over a month.)
To learn more about Robert, attend the Exeter Historical Society's next meeting on Tuesday, April 5th at 7:30pm. In an illustrated presentation entitled "Whatever Happened to Robert Todd Lincoln?" curator Barbara Rimkunas will explore the somewhat challenging life of Abraham Lincoln's only surviving son.
*Robert, the eldest -- who attended Phillips Exeter Academy -- is standing. Willie, who died in 1862, is seated in front of the table, and Tad (Thomas) is with his father.
