About this title:

Synopsis: Keckley was a former slave who became a successful Washington, D.C., dressmaker ― and a confidante of Mary Todd Lincoln. This intimate bond allowed her to witness the happy times as well as the tragic events that unfolded within the Lincoln White House. A remarkable firsthand narrative of both African-American and Civil War history.
