The Lee monument time capsule opened Monday afternoon includes items that match descriptions from 1887 newspaper archives. Workers found a piece of wood with a bullet in it and a Confederate button, both of which were noted in a list of 60 items placed in the box that dates back to 1887. They also removed papers described as constitution and bylaws of Lee Camp, another match. But the picture of Abraham Lincoln in his coffin wasn't the rare artifact some expected: It was a reproduction from a copy of Harper's Weekly.
