*ABRAHAM LINCOLN ~ In May 1901, son Robert Lincoln visited his father's tomb and decided upon changes again. In 1876, thieves had failed in an attempt to steal Abe's corpse and hold it for ransom. Robert didn't want a repeat of that possibility, so this time the coffin would be buried ten feet deep and encased in concrete. In this photograph, the protecting outer box was broken away in the efforts to move it and Abraham Lincoln's red cedar coffin is revealed.
