INCIDENT No. 25: Anissa MackWashington Slept in Lincoln's Bedroom
August 31 - September 30, 2009
The second floor White House room commonly referred to as
Lincoln's bedroom was originally used as an office and meeting room by President Lincoln and other Presidents until the construction
of the West Wing in 1902. One of the few photographs of Lincoln inside the White House was taken in this room by Matthew
Brady in 1864. It was not until after the renovation of the White House undertaken during the Truman administration
that this room became so exclusively associated with Lincoln.
