For more than 140 years, the Bixby letter has been hailed as one of President Abraham Lincolns most remarkable prose masterpieces. It has been displayed in museums across theUnited States and has more recently served as the inspiration of Steven Spielbergs movie Saving Private Ryan. Yet, since the letters creation, its authenticity has been debated by countless handwriting experts, historians and scholars.
