About the Event

Jason Emerson is a journalist and an independent historian who has been researching and writing about the Lincoln family for nearly 20 years. His most recent book, Mary Lincoln for the Ages, (Southern Illinois University Press) was released in April 2019.  The book, part narrative historical inquiry and part analytical bibliography, reexamines nearly every word written about her, revealing how views about her have evolved over the years opening the door for new questions and debates about her legacy. Emerson is a former National Park Service park ranger at the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, in Springfield, Illinois. His previous books include Giant in the Shadows: The Life of Robert T. Lincoln; Mary Lincoln’s Insanity Case: A Documentary History; The Madness of Mary Lincoln, The Dark Days of Abraham Lincoln’s Widow, as Revealed by Her Own Letters; and Lincoln the Inventor.
