    Funeral Service of President Lincoln at Chicago, Illinois. May 1- Removing the Coffin From the Funeral Train to the Catafalque- From a Photograph by Alschuler." Lithograph on newsprint, mounted on white paper. Large crowd lines street, soldiers carry coffin toward large catafalque under canopy. Catafalque under center of three arches with various mottos on them, many flags and flowers. L 15" x W 10 3/4". One of many images of the funeral processions throughout the country. Lincoln's funeral train took 20 days to get from Washington, DC to Springfield for his funeral and burial on May 4. The train basically reversed the route his inaugural train took in 1861. Along the way, many cities had services and processions so that as many people as possible could see his coffin and pay their respects.
