At Albany, thousands of citizens file past Abraham Lincoln's coffin in the State Capitol
President Lincoln's remains had arrived in Albany, New York just before midnight and his coffin was opened to receive visitors at half past one in the morning. For the next twelve hours and more, up to fifty thousand citizens were estimated to have filed past to view the body. The coffin was closed at 2 p.m. and the funeral journey to Illinois resumed at 4 p.m., heading west. (By John Osborne)
