Smithsonian Article on Mary Lincoln's Seamstress

In Feburary 2013, I posted a link to memoirs of Elizabeth Keckley, who was a former slave that became Mary Todd Lincoln's seamstress and confident.  The memoirs give us a look into that period of time and the feelings of women throughout the War, from both sides of society.  The link above takes you to a Smithsonian blog with more information in a Q and A format.  Hope you enjoy it.
