Edwin Booth, brother of John Wilkes Booth. He saved the life of Robert Lincoln in 1864/65 when he pulled him to safety from a train in New Jersey. He did not learn the identity of the man he saved until several months later, and this was said to have given him some comfort in the aftermath of Lincoln's assassination. by justine

History tends to judge our past leaders as extremes: Abraham Lincoln was an American hero! Benedict Arnold was a traitor! As teachers, it’s tempting at times to present a world as black and white to our students: good or evil, friend or foe, hero or villain.

Robert Lincoln the son of Abraham Lincoln, was waiting to board a crowded train when the train lurched forward and he fell between the platform and the body of the passenger car he was trying to board. But before harm came, he was seized by the collar and yanked to the platform. His rescuer was Edwin Booth the brother of the man that would soon kill President Lincoln. by kathryn

In 1866 Vinnie Ream was selected by the U.S. Congress to sculpt a memorial statue of President Abraham Lincoln. This made her the first female artist commissioned to create a work of art for the United States government. Her selection, however, was accompanied by controversy because she was young, female, and had friendships with members of Congress. Despite the objections, Ream was given the commission and the statue of Lincoln was unveiled in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol in 1871. by rosanne
