A guy in Maryland almost threw away a treasure.
Charles Collins was cleaning out his mother's basement when he came across what looked like a rolled-up tube.
"I said knowing my mom and dad, you never know what could be inside this thing, so I decided I was going to check it out," Collins told FOX 5's Tom Fitzgerald.
Charles was holding a piece of family history.
"So I unrolled it and it's my great-great grandfather's civil war discharge," he said.
But it was not just any discharge. On closer inspection, Charles realized it was signed by Abraham Lincoln himself. [Link]
