About this Item

The 1861 Journey of President-elect Abraham Lincoln to Washington, D.C. The fascinating story of Abraham Lincoln's epic journey to Washington in 1861 with many new details. Departing from Springfield, Illinois, millions of supporters of the Union gathered along the margins of the railroad tracks and pack parade routes at cities enroute. In raw, cold, chilly winds, and rain, millions of people cheered Lincoln as he passed by traveling to his final destiny. Laced with photographs, maps and illustrations this is a revealing story of the inaugural train passing through endless miles of well-wishers and the curious. Numerous stops were made, and brief speeches offered. Citizens demonstrated an overwhelming manifestation of support as secession started in the southern states and a confederacy was formed. Each chapter covers one day of the journey, reception and proceedings at each of the eleven planned stops enroute. Elaborate preparations and massive processional displays were conducted at the principal cities of Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, Albany, New York, Trenton, Philadelphia and Harrisburg. A twelfth planned stop at Baltimore, was canceled during a clandestine security move to avoid an assassination attempt, the third of three while enroute. Citizens seeking a glimpse of the President-elect came in throngs and filled miles of city streets. Near riots ensued at several locations in the effort by the masses to see and hear the President-elect. The overwhelming response of a nation during this terrible transitional time stands as a tribute to the courage of one man and the 36 million citizens during momentous events in one of the most intensely impressive chapters of American history.
