Washingtonians watched from rooftops and sidewalks as President Lincoln’s funeral proceeded down Pennsylvania Avenue on April 19.

The hearse bearing the president’s remains was pulled by six gray horses, each led by a groom wearing a full black suit, white satin sash and a dress hat festooned with white muslin.
