RCHS: Victory Turned Into Mourning

victory-turned-into-mourningOn Sunday, February 21, at 2:00 p.m., the Ravena Coeymans Historical Society will feature Stuart Lehman of Guilderland whose program “Victory Turned Into Mourning” will describe New York’s farewells to both Lincoln and Grant. Lehman will explore these solemn events and their connections to the New York State Capitol.

One hundred and fifty-one years ago, as the nation mourned Abraham Lincoln, its martyred president, a special funeral train journeyed from Washington DC to Springfield, Illinois, with Albany, New York as one of its major stops. On April 26, 1865, Lincoln’s body lay in state in the old state Capitol building while some 50,000 people filed by to pay their respects. At the exact same time, over 400 miles to the south, assassin John Wilkes Booth was cornered in a tobacco barn, shot by a New York state cavalryman, and died of his wounds.
