Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is, Mr. Lincoln?

The Smithsonian’s Museum of American History has discovered a long forgotten message inside Abraham Lincoln’s pocket watch, one Lincoln never even knew was there. While repairing the president’s watch in April 1861, Jonathan Dillon heard about the attack on Fort Sumter and inscribed a message on the metal inside the watch: “Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?” Curators are searching the rest of the watch for sheet music.
