Civil War Cdv Of Mary Todd, Wife Of President Abraham Lincoln:
For sale is a carte de visite, CDV, of President Abraham Lincoln's troubled wife, Mary Todd .Mary Lincoln suffered from severe headaches, described as migraines, throughout her adult life as well as protracted depression. During her White House years, she also suffered a head injury in a carriage accident, after which her headaches seemed to become more frequent. A history of mood swings, fierce temper, public outbursts throughout Lincoln's presidency, as well as excessive spending, has led some historians and psychologists to speculate that Mary suffered from bipolar disorder.The CDV is in good condition with some minor spotting as shown in the photograph.
