    This song makes me stop for the bitter minute that it plays because my heart goes out to her and how heart wrenching her life had become the moment she saw her husband's life flee from life to death.

    All the Illinois references in the song titles are one of the things that drew me to this album, but this has to be my favorite, both title and track. ~40 seconds of beauty.

    It is abraham's wife, and she did indeed go insane, but for very good reasons...

    By the time you are done saying the title, the song is nearly over.

    I believe Mary Todd refers to Mary Todd Lincoln, good ol' Abraham's wife.
