    Abraham Lincoln: Caskets In Oakridge Cemetery Receiving Vault Carte de Visite (CDV).
    Rare CDV of Lincoln and his son Willies caskets soon after arriving at Oakridge Cemetery in Springfield, Ill. Willie had died on February 20, 1862 in Washington, DC, and was buried there. After the Presidents assassination in April 1865 it was decided that Willie would be exhumed and brought back with his father on the long journey back to Springfield for reinternment. This CDV shows both caskets in the vault with flowers and urns. The CDV has an Ingmire, Springfield back imprint. Has rounded corners, and light tonality. A rare poignant image.
