A program on the Lincolns to celebrate Lincoln’s Birthday (2011) received high praise from a well-read group of ladies who had been studying Mrs. Lincoln. The costume and the reproduction jewelry were greatly admired. The setting included a lovely tea on the table with all the finest silver tea service, fine lace and linen, crystal and china. There were home baked and home made Victorian recipe food items. Note the Lincoln statue for the centerpiece.
