I appreciated the descriptions of the historical society's work and of the finder's awe. And it highlights the importance of labeling your memorabilia {wry grin}.

Wow, chills from reading that. Amazing.

Wow. Just...wow.

I get surprised, every now and then, at how I'm capable of feeling sincere pain at the loss of Lincoln. Good heavens, it's ancient history! And yet, the loss to this nation was so monumental that I feel it to this day.
I may have said here before that I've often wondered if our agonizing racial struggles (still ongoing) would have been lessened had he been around to guide the post-war era.

Great man; we were fortunate to have him.
