At approximately 9.30pm on April 25, 1865 Lincoln's funeral train passed through the city of Hudson, New York. In honor of this anniversary, there will be a re-creation of the events that took place that night in Hudson, including a torchlight procession, a choir of women singing dirges, an oration, and a tableau vivant.
The re-enactment will begin at approximately 8.45pm this Saturday, April 25th. It is timed to coincide with the arrival of the Lincoln's funeral train at 9.30pm.
The event will commence at Basilica Hudson, in front of Kite’s Nest, then crosses over the railroad tracks at Broad Street to the lawn beside the old Dunn warehouse.
