Two Views of President Abraham Lincoln's Funeral Procession at the Corner of 6th and Chestnut Streets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1865)

Two views of President Abraham Lincoln's funeral procession at the corner of 6th and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, April 22, 1865. The catafalque carrying his casket is visible on the right of both scenes. A recruitment billboard for Union Major General Winfield Scott Hancock's 1st (Veteran?) Army Corps (or possibly just exemption agents using that name?) is visible above the catafalque. By Ridgway Glover. Animated stereoviews.
