President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 15, 1865. The entire nation held mourning events and thousands of people wore mourning cockades in his memory.
October 30, 1864. In Autumn 1864, Mary Lincoln's half sister Emilie Todd Helm asked the president for a travel pass to tend to business affairs in the South. When he refused, she wrote an angry letter chiding him that "your minnie bullets have made us what we are."

Only about 130 photos of Lincoln are known to exist, so excitement peaked when this March 5,1865 photo was discovered in Gen. Ulysses S. Grant’s family-owned album showing President Lincoln in front of the White House - especially when it could be one of the last photos taken of him before he was assassinated just one month later. The seal of photographer, Henry F. Warren appears on the back of the photograph, along with an inscription: “Lincoln in front of the White House.”
Mary Todd Lincoln reveled in the social life of Washington. She spent copious amounts of money remodeling the White House and on extravagances like 300 gloves in 4 months and a 2500 dollar carpet. These shopping sprees landed her 6000 dollars over her 20,000 dollar Congressional limit. Some historians explain her shopping sprees as symptoms of bipolar disorder. Her spending was so bad that it was even an issue in the election of 1864.
