Abraham Lincon’s Last Journey

                                                         

Abraham Lincons’s last journey was in the funeral train that carried his body. The train left Washington on the 21st of April 1865. Nearly 3200 kilometres were traversed, and people lined the entire distance, almost without interval, standing with uncovered heads, mute with grief, as the funeral train swept by. Even night and falling showers did not keep the mourners away from honouring their beloved President on his last journey.
