Abraham Lincoln's hometown re-enacted his burial 150 years later in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield.
A funeral procession made its way through the streets of the capital city this weekend. It was replete with men wearing Civil War soldiers’ costumes and women in hoop skirts carrying black mourning parasols.
There also were replicas of the ornate coffin, hearse and train car that carried the 16th president's body.
The Illinois National Guard's leader, Adjutant General Daniel Krumrei, says the guard is headquartered at Camp Lincoln in Springfield.
