Trails and Towns : Abraham Lincoln's Death Carriage
Last month, or maybe in June, when Adam and I were driving out to his hometown, we passed a little train station that we always pass. Unlike every other day, it was totally crowded and there were signs about a special event; Abraham Lincoln's Death Carriage. Maybe it wasn't called the "death carriage," but that's what I'm calling it. It's the train car that took Abraham Lincoln's body on a tour of five states before his burial in Illinois. Unfortunately, this was not the original car, but a remake. Nevertheless, it was totally awesome.
