Lincoln's Body Arrives in Cleveland

From April 29, 1865.

"There were no social lines, no boundaries between condition separating those who, in solemn pageant, moved past the coffin that held the mortal remains of Abraham Lincoln.

"The banker and the merchant walked side by side with the laborer, the lad of fashion and estate with the lowly kitchen maid...."

--Old Secesh
