Abraham Lincoln’s Final Trip Home

April 25, 2013

A man of such physical and moral stature couldn’t be bade a final farewell without an equally monumental procession. Commencing on the afternoon of May 1, 1865, Lincoln’s body was transported from Washington DC to his home of Springfield, Illinois by a funeral train that made a point to retrace the route Lincoln took when making his way to his seminal inauguration some years prior. Not present in the funeral train was his wife, Mary Todd, who was too distraught to leave the nation’s capital.
