Kentucky Chautauqua: Emilie Todd Helm
As the sister of Mary Todd Lincoln and the wife of Confederate General Benjamin Hardin Helm, Emilie Todd Helm had a front row view of history during and after the Civil War. After General Helm was killed at Chickamauga, President and Mrs. Lincoln invited Emilie to come to the White House, but Helm soon departed for Kentucky, where she lived out her long life.
