Ogle County Man Wants You To Have the Constitution
An Ogle County man wants you to have a special copy of the U.S. Constitution.
According to the Register Star, in 2011 Ken Foss and Jeff Johnson discovered more than 10,000 copies of the Constitution in a Kingston warehouse owned by Johnson:
Artist Theodore Ohman created the documents using glass-plate negatives and metal-press plates, some of which Foss and Johnson also found. Foss and Johnson, who live in Byron and Genoa, respectively, have spent much of their time researching Ohman and the documents to understand their value.
