This Surrealistic drama looks at the life of Robert Todd Lincoln, oldest and only surviving son of President Lincoln. We examine Mr, Lincoln's life both as man caught in the mainstream of human tragedy and suffering but who still triumphed to make a contribution to the land he loved so well not as Able Lincoln's son but as Robert Todd Lincoln, statesman and business man.

Kennedy, only because he had been dead for 36 years in 1963. We open at the dedication of the Lincoln Memoria on the National Mall in 1922
