#YourLabel - Original Brick from the Home of Abraham Lincoln

For our crowdsourced exhibit, we'd like to know what #YourLabel would say about this object!

This miniature brick measures 1 1/2" x 5/8" x 7/16" and is mounted on a 6 1/8" x 4" card. The brick is cut from a larger broken brick that was part of the the only home that Lincoln owned, on 8th & Jackson Street in Springfield, Illinois.

Here are some resources to get you started:
