Grief is part of our origin story at President Lincoln’s Cottage. After losing their 11- year-old son Willie in February of 1862, Abraham and Mary Lincoln sought solace and a place to grieve when they moved to the Cottage at the Soldier’s Home.  Join us as we bring together experts, scholars, and the public to cultivate fierce compassion for the bereaved in a grief-averse society.

This program is free and open to the public. Please register to reserve your space. If you’re not able to join us in person, please tune in to the livestream day-of.
