With support from a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant, The Fells Estate & Historic Gardens in Newbury presents a series about one of the greatest presidents in our nation’s history, Abraham Lincoln. John Hay, whose summer residence is now known as The Fells Estate, was one of Lincoln’s closest aides and confidants and, along with John Nicolay, was the subject of a book by Joshua Zeitz, Lincoln’s Boys: John Hay, John Nicolay, and the War for Lincoln’s Image.
