Abraham Lincoln
[Add A Photo]
A short distance away, on the side of a memorial bell tower, this tablet is preserved which states it held the mortal remains of Abraham Lincoln when he was placed in the receiving vault. The elements have taken a great toll on the engraving as the depth of the letters starts to disappear as you go further down the tablet from the top.
After looking at this tablet, I concluded it must have been used to cover the open doorway to the receiving vault since it states it held the "mortal remains" of President Lincoln. If you look at the front of the receiving vault, it looks as if this tablet could fit right in the entrance opening.
