Robert Todd Lincoln (August 1, 1843 – July 26, 1926) was an American lawyer and Secretary of War, and the first son of President Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. Born in Springfield, Illinois, United States, he was one of two of Lincoln's four sons to live to adulthood. He & his father lacked the strong bond his father had with brothers Willie and Tad, but Robert deeply admired his father and wept openly at his deathbed.
