William Wallace "Willie" Lincoln (December 21, 1850 – February 20, 1862) was the third son of Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. He died at the age of 11, most likely caused by Typhoid Fever. Both parents were deeply affected. His father did not return to work for three weeks. Willie's younger brother, Tad, cried for nearly a month because he and Willie were very close. Lincoln generated no official correspondence for four days. Mary was so distraught that Lincoln feared for her sanity.

Just 10 years after President Lincoln's assassination, his widow, Mary Todd Lincoln, was charged with insanity and put on trial in Chicago. The accuser was her only surviving son, Robert Lincoln. The trial was held on May 19, 1875 and she had received no prior warning or chance to organise a defense. The jury deliberated for only 10 minutes and she was institutionalized at Bellevue Place Asylum. Mary was released after less than 4 months but mother and son were never truly reconciled.
