Long-lost plaque marking Lincoln’s work at church is found

LINCOLN, Ill. (AP) — The pastor of a central Illinois church says he’s thrilled a long-lost plaque marking Abraham Lincoln’s work at the site has been returned. The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports that a rumor circulated for years that the former president practiced law at Lincoln Christian Church in Lincoln. The Rev. Ron Otto says he was told the proof could be found on a plaque that once hung in the church. But the plaque went missing some 60 years ago. It was returned to the church this week.
