MOURNING LINCOLN
One hundred and fifty years ago this month, the northern states were celebrating the surrender of the Confederate army at Appomattox and the end of the Civil War. Sadly, the celebrations were cut short by the assassination of President Lincoln just five days later.

To commemorate the anniversary, National Geographic has featured a fascinating article that chronicles the nationís mourning and the journey of the Lincoln funeral train that followed. Read the article here and delve into the history with wood engravings and photogravures from our antique Civil War collection. We have extensive prints from both the 1865 editions of "Harperís Weekly" and Frank Leslieís "Famous Leaders and Battle Scenes of the Civil War" printed in 1896.
