May 4, 1865. President Abraham Lincoln is buried in Springfield, Illinois, having been assassinated on April 14th. His 11-year-old son Willie, who had died during Lincoln’s term in office, is moved to be interned next to him. Lincoln’s funeral train stops in 180 communities along the path from Washington.
One thought on “We all must go Home”
Did not realize his son had been moved next to him.
