“We are truly delighted with this retreat…and each day, brings its visitors.” – Mary Lincoln, 1862
The doors of the Cottage at the Soldier’s Home welcomed Lincoln home to his family as he returned from long and arduous days working at the White House. This place served as a refuge for the entire Lincoln family in the wake of the loss of their 12-year-old son Willie, and a valuable retreat for Lincoln as he worked on the Emancipation Proclamation. When Lincoln visited the Cottage for the last time on the day before his assassination, he left intending to return, leaving the door open for others to continue his unfinished work.
