156 years ago today Abraham Lincoln’s body lied in state after his assassination.
The Republican president was murdered by a Democrat actor while at the theater.

Over 25,000 Americans lined up to pay their respects to Abraham Lincoln.
They said old and young, rich and poor, all sexes and colors lined up to honor Abraham Lincoln.
And aide to the Great Emancipator observed, “We never shall know his like again.”
