Publisher Summary
When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in 1865, the country grieved for the courageous president who had guided them through the Civil War. Over the course of thirteen somber days, people paid homage as Lincoln's funeral train made its way from Washington, D.C., to Springfield, Illinois. In moving prose and stunning paintings, a young boy experiences the deep feelings evoked by the assassination and death of a major historical figure, during a time of great change in the country.

Told through a young boy's eyes, the sober mood of the country after the Lincoln assassination is presented as he and others wait to pay their respects as Lincoln's funeral train travels from Washington, D.C., to Springfield, IL, in 1865.
