President Lincoln's funeral

  • Full Title

    President Lincoln's funeral. [Harper's Weekly illustration.]

  • Description

    Here, an illustration from Harper's Weekly depicts the funeral procession of Abraham Lincoln in an issue published on May 13, 1865. Guided by Union Soldiers on all sides, Lincoln's body is processed through the crowded streets of New York City as onlookers gather to see their beloved President. In the center of the illustration, a balcony is adorned with a banner that reads "WITH MALICE TOWARD NONE, WITH CHARITY FOR ALL," which is probably a reference to the respect and integrity recognized by many in their president, Abraham Lincoln. The illustration provides only what can be presumed to be the first name of the artist "Brady" in the bottom center.
