COPPER SWORD STOLEN FROM LINCOLN'S TOMB



This comes as breaking news and is also deemed to have been done by vandals. A copper sword resting atop Abraham Lincoln's final resting place has been stolen. The last time that same sword was stolen was in 1890, over 100 years ago. There are been no security guard at the place during the night for a lack of funds. it must have been stolen during the night as during the day one of the workers would have noticed. The sword has been broken off at the handle. 


The statue is located on the tomb's balcony and which is actually closed to visitors. The rest of the statue has been left unharmed and authorities say they plan to fix the statue.
