Precious Lincoln documents on their way to new home

Anonymous Patron writes "Looks Like Abe Is Coming Home; The move _ which requires years of planning, a platoon of movers, three weeks and $109,000 _ is the last major step before opening the long-delayed, state-of-the-art Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. The old library is a dungeon-like maze of rooms beneath the Old State Capitol in downtown Springfield. With the move underway, shelves are half-empty. The floors are crowded with orange "RentaCrates" being loaded with books and papers. Empty cabinets, broken chairs and boxes of odds and ends are scattered everywhere."
