Remembering Abe Lincoln and his Son on Father’s Day

Today, the third Sunday of June, is Father’s Day. Established in honor of fathers and fatherhood, the day compliments Mother’s Day which is celebrated in May.

Father figures and their relationships with their children are prominent throughout history. One little-known yet poignant story in American history is the bond between President Abraham Lincoln and his youngest son, Tad.

Surrounded by war, desolation and insanity, and mourning the loss of a son, Lincoln found comfort in his free-spirited 12-year old, whom he could hardly control. The boy was notoriously known for his tricks and stubborness, but his father defended his actions, saying “Let him run.”

“There’s time enough yet for him to learn his letters and get pokey,” he would say. “It is my pleasure that my children are free – happy and unrestrained by parental tyranny. Love is the chain whereby to lock a child to its parent.”

Lincoln was known to request small gifts for his son as well. The Shapell Manuscript Foundation has a handwritten note from the president asking Chief of Engineers General Delafield to present his son with a map or two, and several other exist that request a pistol, or a wagon, or various other items.

After Lincoln’s murder, Tad revealed a level of sentiment and depth when he asked a White House visitor if he thought his father had gone to heaven. When he received an affirmative answer he said:

“I’m glad he has gone there, for he was never happy after he came here. This was not a good place for him.” He also showed true self-awareness and understanding, adding, “I must learn to take care of myself now. Yes, Pa is dead, and I am only Tad Lincoln now, little Tad, like other little boys. I’m not a president’s son now. I won’t have many presents anymore.”


Sherlock Holmes Through the Ages

sherlock-holmesSherlock Holmes, created by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, may be the “most prolific screen character in the history of cinema,” according to Wikipedia. Actors from all fields have pursued roles in Sherlock Holmes productions, including film and television actors such as John Castle, stage actors like John Webb and radio actors like John and Val Gielgud.

The first known film featuring the eccentric investigator is a one-minute single reel film called Sherlock Holmes Baffled which was made in 1900. Five years later the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes; or, Held for Ransom vitagraph was released. Since then, literally thousands of adaptations have been produced, ranging from The Return of Sherlock Holmes (1929), Paramount on Parade (1930) and Sherlock Holmes (1932) to the 2009 version starring Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law.

Sherlock Holmes and his biographer Dr. John Watson have grown in popularity on television as well. In 1984 British television company Granada Television launched The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, featuring Jeremy Brett. Actor John Castle also appeared on the show as one of the schemers in The Solitary Cyclist. He was later featured in the film version of The Crucifer of Blood as well.

Today, two of the most popular shows on television are contemporary takes on Doyle’s stories, including BBC’s London-based Sherlock and CBS’s Elementary, which takes place in New York City.
