Fun Fact: Almost Wife To an Almost President

Fun facts about Mary Todd Lincoln

In the 19th century, a young woman named Mary Ann Todd was courted by a Democratic politician named Stephen A. Douglas. Todd eventually married a fellow Whig, which Douglas later defeated in a Senate race in Illinois. The two gentlemen faced each other in politics one last time in the 1860 President election, and Mary Todd became first lady as her husband Abraham Lincoln became president.
