I have mentioned before that Threaded, a Smithsonian blog, in one of my favorites. Here is an article that I don’t want people to miss. It is entitled The Story Of Elizabeth Keckley, Former Slave Turned Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker. It has now been turned into a play. Threaded gives a good background on Todd’s and Keckley’s relationship.
