I always enjoy learning what great people carried in their pockets. Says a lot about them and there’s usually some interesting idea to pick up.
What was Abraham Lincoln's EDC the day he was assassinated?
found in President Lincoln’s pockets: two pairs of spectacles and a
lens polisher, a pocket knife, a watch fob, a linen handkerchief, a
sleeve button, and a brown leather wallet containing a $5 Confederate
note. Image courtesy of the Library of Congress.
Knife, wallet, cash, handkerchief. Looks like good EDC for a President.
anyone has more information about those watch fobs that would be nice
to know, please leave a comment. And one more thing: If there's a watch
fob... then where's the watch?
