  • Living History Program

    Gifted storyteller Sally Mummey of Seabrook, pictured, brought Mary Todd Lincoln to life in a Living History program at Kimball Library in Atkinson, sponsored by the NH Humanities Council “Hummanities to Go” grant and the Friends of the Kimball Library. Raised in a slaveholding family, Mary Todd Lincoln evolved into an advocate for abolition. The intellectual equal of well-educated men, she spoke her mind openly in an era when a woman’s success in life was measured by marriage and motherhood. Against her family’s wises, she married the man she loved and partnered with him to achieve their goal of becoming President and First Lady.
