Abraham Lincoln recreated Hearse Journey is over


The Abraham Lincoln recreated Hearse Journey is over.

President Lincoln has beenbroughthome in the same spirit of a one hundred and fifty years ago, people crowed the streets to get aglimpse of his funeral hearse. Kids sitting on their father’s shoulders, on roof tops,even climbing up trees, to see the hearse. There was a buzz among the crowd. Many of the men saluted the hearse as it past.

The construction of the recreated hearse became a historical event its self,it was build by combat veterans who served on the front lines in Afghanistan and Iraq. The lead builders were Vietnam Combat Veterans. It was a healing event for those veterans psychological wounds.

Lincoln’s words“To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan,” affirmed the obligation to care for those injured during the war and to provide for the families of those who perished on the battlefield. Veteransadministration has this as their motto.

Staab family Livery, commissioned the reproduction hearse. The family hasalways been avid supporters of veterans activities. It is a part of their mission to“Remember, Educate & Heal”. PJ Staab II, served as Project Coordinator andinvolved in every aspect of the building of the hearse. I, those who build the hearse, and those that stood in the street and watched it passed give thanks to PJ for his leadership and the Staab familycommitment to the project.
