Discourse Commemorative of Our Illustrious Martyr free pdf Excerpt from Discourse Commemorative of Our Illustrious Martyr: Delivered in Congregational Church, South Abington, Fast Day, June 1, 1865 And so devout men bore Abraham Lincoln to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. Devout men! Devout multitudes, for Cities, Commonwealths, nay, the whole Country, rose up, in tearful tribute, as those mortal remains moved on to their soft slumber, amid the spreading prairies of the West. For two memorable weeks did a loving people tenderly detain the cherished dust of their endeared President, that their tears might have time to flow- and the funeral cortege stretched a thousand miles unbroken, from the waters of the weeping Atlantic, toward the setting sun. The atmosphere was draped- buildings were in ebony- every balcony was a catafalque- and every street, and the long line of railroad, seemed one shaded avenue, leading to the Mausoleum of the dead. The precious casket was covered wath costliest and sweetest flowers, and every countenance was a symbol of bereavement. Was there ever such a spectacle? Did the sun ever, in all its circuit, look down upon such a scene? A whole nation a weeping Niobe. When Prince Albert, and Lafayette, and Edward Everett, were borne to their burial, mighty men were bowed with grief- but the burial of Abraham Lincoln was unprecedented. When the great Washington departed this life, the country was covered with sackcloth. "It was a day of darkness, and of doubtful expectation," says a cotemporary. There was then, however, but a small population comparatively to mourn. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
