See items touched by Lincoln, Jefferson at Gilbert museum

Walking past via the breezeway outside, you might poke your head in, scan the room briefly, and decide to move on — but, oh, the things you would miss. Like, say, Abraham Lincoln’s original signature. Or two lead bullets that collided in air during a volley between Union and Confederate soldiers at Gettysburg. The items are part of “Documenting War: The Kinnaman Collection,” an exhibition on display at Gilbert Historical Museum. Though it takes up just a single room (and a waist-high case in a hallway), it packs a punch.
