Description

This mourning broadside was published in commemoration of the death of President Abraham Lincoln on April 15, 1865, in Washington, D.C. The title is at the top in a very large font size. A black line divides the title from the poem expressing the emotion at the loss of President Lincoln. A wide rectangular black mourning border surrounds all of the text.
