April 2015: We present to you this month's episode focusing on Lincoln's Funeral Train. After the death of Abraham Lincoln on April 15, 1865, arrangements were made to return the body of the fallen president to his hometown in Springfield, IL. The journey would traverse 1,600 miles and allow the American people to say good bye to their martyred president. The first stop on this momentous journey was Baltimore, MD.
Please join us at the B&O Railroad Museum for Abraham Lincoln: The Final Journey, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's death and journey home.
On April 18 & 19, 2015, attend a scheduled reenactment of Lincoln's funeral cortege and placing of the coffin in the center of the 1884 Roundhouse.
