As mentioned on a few other blogs earlier this week the National Archives said they would unveil a newly found note written by Lincoln. Today was the unveiling, and what was this long lost note?

The text has been known forever, now we have the original note Lincoln gave to Halleck to telegraph to Meade. Interesting? Sure. Exciting? Not really.
