Camp Milton Historic PreserveThe first of many funeral services for the fallen president, who was assassinated on April 15, 1865, was conducted at the White House on Wednesday, April 19. A procession then accompanied the horse-drawn hearse as Lincoln was carried to the Capitol Rotunda, where he lay in state until the following day. The president's remains were then placed on a special train for the 1,700-mile trip to Springfield, Illinois. A monument was constructed in Springfield, and is now the tomb of Lincoln, his wife, and three of his sons. This tree grew from a seed taken from the White Oak growing by Lincoln's Tomb.
