On March 4, 1865, at the United States Capitol, a crowd of fifty thought listened as President Lincoln delivered his classic second inaugural address, urging charity and forgiveness to a nation in the final those of war. Just Two months later, a train, nine cars long and draped in black bunting pulled slowly out of a station in Washing, D.C. Dignitaries and government officials crowded the first eight cars. In the ninth rode the body of Abraham Lincoln. As the funeral train made its way across nine states and through hundreds of cities and towns, the largest manhunt in history was closing in on Lincoln's assassin, the famous actor John Wilkes Booth.
