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. 


He either witnessed or was nearby for three of our Presidential assassinations:  Lincoln,Garfield, and McKinley.  The younger Lincoln missed out on the fourth, John F. 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




Through his eyes takes place in 1884, as crowds clamor for him to become president  at the age of 41.He  muses in his office going back to the tragedy of 1865
