Mention how Willie died.[edit]

Recommend the following change.

"Willie" Lincoln was born on December 21, 1850, and died on February 20, 1862.

"Willie" Lincoln was born on December 21, 1850, and died of illness on February 20, 1862.


Since Willie died during the Civil War it is useful to clarify the cause. It leads the reader to wonder if the fighting was related. The details are listed on Willie's page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.16.93.201 (talk) 15:34, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

No, typhoid diagnosis needs a RELIABLE source with medical expertise not a popular book that has less than a sentence and no references. Little boys in the White House don't die in battle. in any case the material belongs with the boy's article not the father's. Rjensen (talk) 07:48, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Lincoln did not regret opposition to Mexican War[edit]

"Lincoln later regretted some of his statements, especially his attack on the presidential war-making powers.[67]"

Lincoln never stated he regret these statements or his attack on the presidential war-making powers. The source used only states that his actions "would later come back to haunt him." Which is an extremely liberal interpretation by Daniel Herbert Donald. Because he voiced opposition to the presidential war-making powers during his time in Congress and later became a president who would strengthen the presidential war-making powers doesn't mean that he regretted his earlier actions. --170.140.214.20 (talk) 03:56, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

I Read this in a History Book Somewhere, and Wondered if this would be of interest in the Abraham Lincoln Death Details... Al Adams AlAdams12 (talk) 20:44, 21 June 2014 (UTC)[edit]

I Read this in a History Book Somewhere, and Wondered if this would be of interest in the Abraham Lincoln Death Details... See Below..

A week before Lincoln’s Death, Lincoln dreamt that he heard crying in a room in the White House? He found the room and saw a coffin and someone crying. When he asked who was in the coffin, the person responded, “It's the President.” Then he looked in the coffin and saw himself.
