Tad Lincoln, Abe Lincoln's son, was a wild child. Before Abe became president, Tad would often trash his father's law office in Illinois. He never attended formal school but went through many private tutors who couldn't handle him. He was allowed everywhere in the White House and would often interrupt his father's meetings, bring animals inside and charge people to meet his father. He had a speech impediment that often made him impossible to understand. He died at 18 from tuberculosis.

Very rare...Only known drawing of Lincoln in state...drawn by artist Pierre Morand in New York during Lincoln's funeral.  It was said that Morand was let in during the night because Edwin Stanton wouldn't allow photos or drawings.  This drawing is owned by the Abraham Lincoln Book Shop and I do not claim any copyright to it
