I didn't see any prohibition in using the internet for research, so I found out this marks the land that Lincoln owned in Iowa that he received for fighting in the Black Hawk War.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Thank you to Rob for posting Abraham Lincoln's famous Thanksgiving Day Proclamation of October 3, 1863.

This was not Lincoln's only proclamation. In all, how many proclamations of prayer, fasting, or thanksgiving did Lincoln issue during his time in the White House?

This was a tough one, so I'll just give the answer.

The answer is 9.
