Lincoln’s Last Ride — 150th Anniversary Commemoration at the Lincoln’s Cottage

On April 13, 2015, as part of the ceremonies celebrating the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s death a horse procession commemorating “Lincoln’s Last Ride” began on 15th Street near the White House and concluded at Lincoln’s Cottage. A riderless horse represented the fallen president. President Lincoln last visited his Washington, D.C., cottage retreat on April 13, 1865, the day before his assassination.

As the procession and following ceremony occurred in the middle of the day, I’m providing the link below for those who may have missed it.

    That’s an awfully small horse for our fallen president! You’d think they’d find a larger mount for a man who towered well above 6 feet!
