Stolen bust of Lincoln found at Gettysburg cemetery

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (AP) – A bust of Abraham Lincoln that was stolen from outside a museum near where he delivered the “Gettysburg Address” has been found.

Rose Little, manager of the Hall of Presidents and First Ladies Museum, tells the Gettysburg Times (http://bit.ly/1XBfw0d) the bust was found in a nearby cemetery’s bushes by some out-of-state visitors on Friday.

She says they called the museum to report the discovery and delivered the bust to Little.

It appears to be in good shape, she says, with just a bit of mud caked on it.

She says the museum will clean it and “put President Lincoln back up on the pedestal where he belongs.”

The bust was stolen sometime between Nov. 22 and Nov. 23, and just days after the city celebrated the 152nd anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address on Nov. 19.
