Excerpt from A Memorial of Abraham Lincoln, Late President of the United StatesAs the President of the United States was sitting with his wife in a private box at Ford's Theatre in Washington, on the evening of April 14, 1865, - happy in view of the speedy termination of a protracted civil war, and the fulfilment of his high purpose, - he received a death-wound from a pistol-shot fired by an assassin, lie never spoke afterwards, but lingered until twenty-two minutes past seven o'clock, on the morning of April 15, when he died. The news of his death was received in this city soon after eight o'clock, through a despatch from the Secretary of War, and produced feelings of sadness and alarm never before equalled. By order of His Honor, the Mayor, the bells were immediately tolled, and the flags on all public buildings were displayed at half mast. The places of business and amusement were all closed, and the insignia of mourning appeared on nearly every building, public and private, in the city. An informal meeting was organized early in the day at the Merchants' Exchange, and a Committee was appointed to prepare and send a despatch to Washington, expressing sympathy for the family of the deceased, and giving an assurance of confidence and support to his constitutional successor - Andrew Johnson.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
