While this story comes from the Baltic Sea and not Illinois, the time period is right for Abraham Lincoln.
Divers in July found the wreckage of a ship that may have sunk in the early 1800's. On board, they discovered bottle of champagne that were still intact and have been bringing them to the surface in secrecy.
Because of the cold temperature of the Baltic Sea, experts expect the champagne may still be drinkable and hope to sell the recovered bottles for $68,000 each.
Wouldn't it be interesting to sip bubbly that President Lincoln may have had the opportunity to drink? That experience could be yours if you have an extra $68,000 in your pocket!
