    The 1860 White House that the Lincolns would take over after his election.  There was no fence,  The public could freely enter the front door and get in line to see the President.  He had to have a special partitioned entranceway made to get to the second floor to escape the crowds.  He met with multitudes of people, with most wanting favors and jobs.  Many parents of Civil War Union soldiers under arrest and awaiting the firing squad were pardoned from these visits.
