The White House Years
Rumors in the Kitchen
takes you through a reproduction of the White House Kitchen where you will hear servants whispering rumors. These servants are discussing Mary's sanity, the mounting war casualties, Lincoln's inability to find a winning general, and rumors that Lincoln is working on an Emancipation Proclamation.
Lincoln's Office in
the White House brings you into an exacting reproduction of Lincoln's White House office. As you enter, Lincoln has just unveiled to his cabinet his plans to issue an Emancipation Proclamation. Each in his own way disapproves. Some say it goes too far, others not far enough; a few believe it is political suicide.
