The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield is adding a ring belonging to the president’s youngest son to its collection.

This is a fascinating find and connection to Tad Lincoln says library spokesperson Chris Wills.

Tad became friendly with the wife of a union soldier and gave her the ring. Wills says it’s a great keepsake that they are honored to have.

It’s been handed down in her family all these years.
