Format: Paperback
This is an extraordinary accounting of the journey of Lincoln's funeral train and how America responded. From start to finish this is a detailed book with maps, photos and text following closely. Just not another dry book about the life of Abraham Lincoln. The author takes you there, through the big state memorials to the little trackside memorials and brief stops. The reader only need close his eyes to hear the train, the hymns and other demonstrations of sorrow. It is not hard to imagine the endless miles of mourners, the expressions of sorrow shown by a merciful and humble nation. Truly, this book demonstrates the extraordinary national observances of Lincoln and the first national funeral for a fallen president. A very impressive book and worthy of every library. The book is well assembled with color dust jacket and solid case. Worth every penny.

Format: Paperback
This is a profound book focusing on the presidential funeral journey for Abraham Lincoln. It is beautifully done, well illustrated, excellent maps, with photos and a marvelous and captivating story line that follows through. Eash chapter seems to surround the events at the stop for that day. It gets down to the trackside level of the ordinary person and really brings out the common man's response to the president's death. This ought to be required reading for every presidental and history scholar. It definitely should be in every public and school library. Destined to be a classic! A keeper in my library!!!! I hope this author writes more books of this quality. If you don't read another history book, read this one.

A good review of the statistics and such about the funeral train and its many stops. The mechanics of this trip 150 years ago was interesting.
