Lincoln's legacy in Newark, NJ at Tryp Newark with Daniel P Quinn.
November 17, 2019
A colleague recently sent me this information that June 1, 1865 was the end of the 50 day mourning period after Lincoln was shot. This date was noted across the Country. In Newark Lincoln appeared here on the way to his Inauguration in 1861.
We will also talk about Gustav Bourglan who appears in my book Newark, Italy and me (Lulu 2019).
Our program will also include a view of the Newark Memorial to James Kearny in Military Park. Attendee's could drive to see Bourghlan's Lincoln and the site where he spoke after our program and discussion including a visit (by car) to the Ward Coffee Company that opened in the 1860's in Newark as well.
Lincoln's Funeral Train came to Newark in 1865 as a nod to the Citizens of Newark who greeted him with a rapturous crowd he noted on Broad St in 1861.
