I have posted the fascinating story of a lock of President Abraham Lincoln’s hair, discovered in the jewelry box of Laura Wolcott Gibbs, the sister of Alfred Gibbs, which became a news story of the day. I have transcribed several accounts linked to a much larger document that follows this story throughout the decades. You can find the full story here.

Enjoy the reading!
