President Lincoln’s Cottage has opened Reflections on Grief and Child Loss, a groundbreaking exhibit that bridges the Lincolns’ experience of the death of their children with modern families whose children have died inexplicably or from illness, disease, physical and gun violence. The exhibit will identify themes and ideas to bring light to the experience of child loss across time and experience and will remain open for at least two years.
