Engrave this Quote I explain to you, exactly and truly, how we are circumstanced. A greater portion of our means is unavailable, consisting of a house in S. Springfield and some wild lands in Iowa. Notwithstanding my great and good husband's life was sacrificed for his country, we are left to struggle in a manner...of life undeserved. Roving Generals have elegant mansions showered upon them, and the American people leave the family of the Martyred President to struggle as best they may! Strange justice this.
refers to General Grant, a war hero, who was given homes in Galena, Philadelphia, and Washington
-Mary Ann Todd Lincoln, August 17, 1865 Tell a Friend
