New Lincoln documents uncovered

A twenty-one-year-old intern working at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield has discovered previously unknown documents from Lincoln’s legal career.  The full story is available at HuffPost Chicago.

This isn’t the first time a young researcher has brought new Lincoln material to light.  Ronald Rietveld found the only known photograph of Lincoln’s body lying in state when he was fourteen.  You can read his recollections of that event at Abraham Lincoln Online.
