*ABRAHAM LINCOLN ~ In May 1901, son Robert Lincoln visited his father's tomb and decided upon changes again. In 1876, thieves had failed in an attempt to steal Abe's corpse and hold it for ransom. Robert didn't want a repeat of that possibility, so this time the coffin would be buried ten feet deep and encased in concrete. In this photograph, the protecting outer box was broken away in the efforts to move it and Abraham Lincoln's red cedar coffin is revealed.

Tad Lincoln, Abe Lincoln's son, was a wild child. Before Abe became president, Tad would often trash his father's law office in Illinois. He never attended formal school but went through many private tutors who couldn't handle him. He was allowed everywhere in the White House and would often interrupt his father's meetings, bring animals inside and charge people to meet his father. He had a speech impediment that often made him impossible to understand. He died at 18 from tuberculosis.
