"Lincoln Document Returned to National Archives"
A document signed by President Abraham Lincoln in the weeks after the Battle of Antietam has been returned to the National Archives.
A November 1862 letter signed by three surgeons in Hagerstown, Md., asking Lincoln to appoint a chaplain to tend to wounded and dying soldiers after the battle – and Lincoln’s signed approval – were returned to Archives officials Thursday. Auctioneer Bill Panagopulos, who helped negotiate the return, handed the documents over to David Ferriero, archivist of the United States.
