Quotes

Linda Hallmark with the historical society says, "I'm kind of disappointed that it didn't go as quickly as I thought. Of course I'm historically minded, so I'm thinking, OK, this is going to go really fast and it hasn't."
...In 1864, L E Gross signed his name. At some point a Southern supporter wrote "Jeff Davis" across one of the metal pieces. "It is unlikely that Lincoln ever knew about the messages that he carried in his pocket" said the Smithsonian. If he did he probably would have had the name "Jeff Davis" removed
