Abraham Lincoln's tomb in Springfield will be getting a makeover ahead of the 150-year anniversary of the 16th President's death.  Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is announcing over 600-thousand dollars to repair and restore the interior of the tomb in Oak Ridge Cemetery.  

The governor claims that Oak Ridge is the second most visited cemetery in the country and that hundreds of thousands of visitors view Lincoln's final resting place each year.  The project should wrap up by next March, leaving 13 months to spare before the anniversary date.
