Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926) was an American lawyer and Secretary of War, and the first son of President Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. Born in Springfield, Illinois, United States, he was one of two of Lincoln's four sons to live to adulthood. He and his father lacked the strong bond his father had with brothers Willie and Tad, yet Robert deeply admired his father and wept openly at his deathbed.
