Funeral train

The locomotive "Nashville" of the Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati Railroad, leads President Abraham Lincoln's funeral train. The engine was bedecked with bunting, special black-fringed presidential flags and a portrait of the fallen president for part of the trip from Washington to Springfield. The train made stops in 11 cities and helped cement Lincoln's place in Americans' hearts. Library of Congress
