Here is a wonderful paper doll tribute to U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and his family, a meticulously detailed re-creation of the mid-nineteenth-century clothing worn by Abraham Lincoln; his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln; and three of their four sons: Robert Todd, William Wallace (“Willie”), and Thomas (“Tad”). Their second child, Edward Baker, died at the age of four, and is not pictured here.
Included are five dolls and 32 authentic costumes, carefully researched and rendered with extraordinary skill and attention to every nuance of fabric and style.
These colorful ensembles recall the clothing and style of the first family in the 1860s. Paper doll enthusiasts, lovers of Americana and period fashion, and students of American history will find much inspiration and enjoyment in this realistic and historically accurate collection.
Ideal for ages 8-11 | Grade Level 3-5
