This had never occurred to me before, what a wrong thing it is, what bad judgement it reflects:

Nearly 35 years after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, a tomb holding the "Great Emancipator" had to be rebuilt and his body was held in a temporary grave until reburied in 1901.

The second part of this is grotesque and should be learned by every schoolchild in America, as part of Lincoln's biography:

Lincoln's coffin has been moved 17 times and opened five times because of vandalism and reconstruction of his tomb.
