The president is planning a celebration at the Lincoln Memorial in honor of the man who sculpted the famous statue of Abraham Lincoln. But KC and Marshall notice one small problem - one of the thumbs has broken off the statue! Has someone stolen Lincoln's thumb? Can KC and Marshall find it before the celebration?
