Lincoln's Funeral 150 Years Ago Today

This past Wednesday marked the 150th year of Abraham Lincoln's death.  Today marks the 150th year since Lincoln's death.  Below are actual photos from Lincoln's funeral 

Look at the picture of Abraham Lincoln's funeral march in NYC. In a window on the 2nd floor, there are two boys. One was Theodore Roosevelt who would later become the president of the United States. The other was his younger brother Elliot Roosevelt whose daughter Eleanor would become the wife of Franklin Roosevelt and first lady of the united states. Elliot and Franklin were distant cousins therefore Franklin is a distant cousin of his wife.
