Abe Lincoln's watch opened!

A gold watch owned by Abraham Lincoln bears a message marking the start of the U.S. Civil War, but the president never knew of the "secret" inscription uncovered on Tuesday at the National Museum of American History.

Makes quite a change from just the watchmaker's initials or State license number!

Best regards,
