Summary

"Well-behaved women seldom make history." --Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Women Who Broke the Rules celebrates the bold and brave women who have forged their own paths--breaking rules along the way--to help shape our country's past, present, and future. Acclaimed author Kathleen Krull blends history and humor in this accessible young biography series.

Mary Todd Lincoln had a unique and determined, if sometimes erratic, personality that made her one of the most memorable First Ladies. Although she was born and raised in the South, she staunchly supported her husband's quest to save the Union and she strictly supported his policies. She was also an advocate for our veterans, and she would often bring flowers and food to wounded soldiers in the hospital and even write letters for them to their loved ones. No matter what criticism or personal hardships she faced, including witnessing her husband's assassination, she remained steadfastly loyal to her country.
