    Please join us Saturday, April 18 & Sunday, April 19, 2015, for
    Abraham Lincoln: The Final Journey to Baltimore, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's death and the funeral train that returned the body of the fallen president home to Springfield, IL. The first stop on this 1,600 mile-trip was Baltimore, MD.

    Exhibit Opening The War Came By Train 1865, the final year

    For one weekend only, April 18 & 19, 2015, commemorative events are planned including scheduled reenactments of Lincoln's funeral cortege and placing of the coffin in the center of the Museum's National Historic Landmark Roundhouse. Visitors will be able to "view" the martyred President in an authentic reproduction of his casket. Civil War soldier and civilian reenactors will participate in the solemn ceremonies and researched authentic funeral music will be provided by the Federal City Brass Band. The Museum's 1863 locomotive "Thatcher Perkins" will accompany the ceremony and be decorated exactly like the Lincoln Funeral Train and will remain on exhibit throughout the remainder of 2015. Each ceremony will be narrated by noted author and guest curator Daniel Carroll Toomey. Times for the formal narrated commemoration will take place Saturday, April 18 at 11:30am & 1:30pm and Sunday, April 19 at 11:30am. Visitors may view the casket, exhibits and interact with soldier and civilian mourners throughout the day. Special artifacts in the Alex. Brown & Sons Exhibition Gallery will include an exact reproduction of the overcoat Lincoln wore on the night of his assassination, a hand-made scale model of the Lincoln Funeral Car and Civil War veteran's ribbons and uniforms.
