The Daily Age of Philadelphia Announces the Arrival of Lincoln's Body

From Baltimore. April 21, 1865, The Daily Age of New York.

"The body of President Lincoln arrived her at ten o'clock... The stores are all closed, the whole population is in the streets, bells tolling, and minute guns firing.

"The weather is unpleasant; a fine mist falling and the lowering sky add to the sadness which is depicted on every countenance."
