Stolen documents, military medals and other artifacts valued at about $5 million _ including letters signed by Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson _ were returned Wednesday to Chicago's Polish Museum after being found in the basement of a home decades after they went missing.
"This is something that we had dreamed and hoped for for so many years," Ciesla said. "It is so important for us to have this safely back not only for the rich Polish history but also for the wonderful American history. It is so important to the world stage."
"There's probably hundreds of documents still out there," Ciesla said.
