For more than twenty years Sally Mummey has brought First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln to life for hundreds of audiences throughout the eastern U.S. Using storytelling and a good dash of humor, she engages audiences of all ages in dynamic, interactive, first-person portrayals. Mummey’s passion for the history of the 19th century has led to extensive research into powerful and prominent women in a male-dominated society. Her interest in Queen Victoria was sparked when she read letters between the Queen and Mrs. Lincoln, which revealed striking parallels in their lives. Mummey is an award-winning lifetime member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters. She is also a member of the Auxiliary to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the Society of Europe, the Victorian Society, and the Surratt Society, as well as Solo Together, a New England-based organization of re-enactors who portray political figures from 19th- and 20th- century America.
