PREFACE.

The death of President Lincoln and the terrible circumstances attending it, his funeral rites, solemn beyond example in history, and the passage of his honored remains from city to city for thousands of miles, created too deep an impression not to make the scenes and the words spoken by the great and eloquent in that season matters to be preserved as a record for after time and thought.

To meet this feeling, the present Memorial has been compiled. Original matter has been furnished, and the full reports of the press, in all parts of the country, freely used.

Giving a sketch of the late President's life, an account of his death and obsequies, the effect here and in Europe, it may be said to include all that is worthy of preservation, and, as such, is submitted to the public.
