Synagogues hold memorial services... Much on the assassination & funeral of Lincoln...



Item # 668461

April 21, 1865

NEW YORK HERALD, April 21, 1865 

* Rare 1st-page mentions of Synagogue services
* Re: Abraham Lincoln's assassination & funeral
* Black mourning borders


Perhaps the most noteworthy coverage is the front-page details regarding various services being held at local synagogues - which includes the congregations at "B'nai Israel," "Bikur Cholim U-Kadisha Synagogue," and "Shaari [Shaare] Zedek" with each synagogue draped in mourning black.
It is quite unusual to find front page mentions of Lincoln memorial services held at synagogues.
Among the additional one column headlines on the front page are: "IN STATE," "THE DEAD BODY IN THE CAPITAL," "THE GUARD OF HONOR," "An Immense Number of Citizens View the Remains," "The Preparations for the Funeral," "FEELING OF THE SOLDIERS," "Route Of The Remains To Springfield," and more. The entire front page is devoted to the murder of Abraham Lincoln.
Inside one-column headings include: "THE ASSASSINS," "GRANT - The Last of Lee's Army Disbanded," "NEWS FROM SAVANNAH," "The Capture Of Mobile," "SEWARD - The Secretary Out Of Danger," and a variety of additional post-Civil War news throughout this issue including more on Lincoln's death.
All 8 pages have black column borders. Nice condition.
