Frazier International History Museum, Louisville, added three Lincoln documents to its collection last week.
The museum paid $32,000 at auction for documents that show how Mary Todd Lincoln was found insane during a public trial (with an all-male jury) in 1875 and committed to a private asylum in Batavia, Ill.
The trial was instigated by the former First Lady’s son, Robert Todd Lincoln, after she tried to purchase poison from pharmacists in Chicago.
