lincolns funeral


New York. Abraham Lincoln’s Funeral Procession, April 25th, 1865.

These Photos taken looking up Broadway toward Union Square. The squarish house left of center is the home of Cornelius Roosevelt, Theodore’s grandfather, and what is great about these is you can see in the first photo, 6 year old Theodore and his brother Elliot looking out the second floor side window. The second photo shows the shutters closed, presumably after the two were caught in the act. 

The last picture is young Master Roosevelt from roughly the same time.

i just found out!!! that i share the same birthday as Theodore Roosevelt!!! do you have any facts on him? if you do, could you please share them?

  • As a child, Roosevelt witnessed the Abraham Lincoln funeral procession. 
  • Theodore Roosevelt had a really, really good memory. Roosevelt claimed he had a photographic memory, but it is a statement that can’t be easily proven today. 
  • Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt were fifth cousins. Eleanor Roosevelt was Theodore’s niece. And Uncle Theodore presented the bride at Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt’s wedding.
  • Roosevelt was the first President to win a Nobel Peace Prize.
  • Roosevelt was a prolific writer. Aided by his excellent memory and his always-high energy level, TR wrote about 35 books in his lifetime and an estimated 150,000 letters. And he did write an autobiography!He was also the father of the modern U.S. Navy. 
  • Roosevelt was a grad college dropout. 
  • Roosevelt was blind in one eye after a boxing injury in the White House. 
  • His mother and his first wife died on the same day. On Valentine’s Day in 1884, Roosevelt’s mother passed away from typhoid fever. One floor above in the same house, his first wife, Alice, died less than 12 hours later from Bright’s disease and complications from giving birth to the couple’s first child just two days before. 
  • Roosevelt went skinny-dipping in the Potomac River.
  • Roosevelt was the first sitting president to leave the country.
  • He volunteered to lead an infantry unit in World War I. The ex-president was eager to return to the front lines. Roosevelt lobbied President Woodrow Wilson to send him to France at the head of a 200,000-man expeditionary force. Around the country, supporters of the hero of San Juan Hill staged rallies of support. 
  • Roosevelt would not get called to fight in the war that eventually claimed his son Quentin, who was killed in action when his plane was shot down over France in 1918.
  • Roosevelt had been a Sunday school teacher, he believed strongly in the separation of Church and State. While taking the oath of office during his inauguration after McKinley’s assassination, he did not swear on the Bible.
  • President Roosevelt was the first president to be commonly known by his initials.
  • 1910, Roosevelt took a four minute flight in a plane built by the Wright brothers, making him the first president to fly in an airplane.
  • Theodore Roosevelt was the youngest president, assuming the office at the age of 42 after President McKinley was assassinated. 
  • 1912, Roosevelt was campaigning in Milwaukee, Wisconsin when a local saloon-keeper shot him. The bullet lodged in his chest after passing through a jacket pocket containing his steel eyeglass case and a copy of his 50 page speech which had been folded in half. Being an anatomist, Roosevelt concluded that since he wasn’t coughing blood the bullet had not penetrated the chest wall into his lung. He declined immediate treatment and gave his 90 minute speech with blood seeping from the wound into his shirt.

It’s really an honor to be in Smithsonian Magazine, especially in such a special issue. Kind of a funny story, when I got the assignment, I was wearing sunglasses that have little Lincolns in the corners - it was just meant to be!

I Don’t Care, I’m Looking At You

For everyone who hates Clarke’s outfit. Esp. @cupcakesandtv, @ariadneskywalker and @quentanilien.

Summary: The clothes aren’t her.

Pretend they don’t immediately take off in the rover following Lincoln/Sinclair’s funeral. Post-312.

The morning after, the air in Arkadia is sharp and everyone remains on edge. Monty suggests they get a solid night of sleep before taking off to find Luna. Nobody really protests, not after the day they had.

Clarke finds herself in the abandoned med center, where there are a few cots with threadbare blankets strewn across them. She didn’t actually have her own quarters in Arkadia. Not since she left, not since she stayed in Polis, so this would have to do.

Looking down at her attire, she sighs. It’s clunky and heavy, not anything she wants to sleep in. Her fingers start working against the dozens of small clasps and hooks and metal bars that hold the grounder armor in place.

There’s a mirror on one wall, rusted and cracked, but she can see her reflection, nonetheless. Shrugging off the large coat, Clarke stares at herself in the simple black undershirt that remains. Swallowing hard, she begins to work her fingers through the last of the braids that still adorned her head, working her fingers gingerly through the knots that have worked their way into being.

She keeps staring, thinking that she’ll see herself. Thinking that she’ll see the Clarke she was four months ago, a year ago, before. Her breathing picks up, shallow and hoarse, her whole body erupts into anger.

The Boys in the Window

April 24, 1865, Union Square, New York City, New York.

As a funeral cortege carries the body of slain President Abraham Lincoln through the streets of New York City, the small heads of two young boys are visible as they watch the procession from the second-story window of their grandfather’s home.

Forty years later, one of those boys would think back to that day as he wore a ring which contained a lock of Lincoln’s hair, placed his hand in the air and said, “I, Theodore Roosevelt, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

The other little boy was Theodore’s younger brother, Elliott, the father of future First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt.

And you wonder why I find this stuff so fascinating.

anonymous asked:

yeah they did a double funeral for lincoln and sinclair (bellamy went and found lincolns body from somewhere and carried it back into camp SO REPENTANT HE IS) and everybody said "yu gonplei ste odon" except bell and then he quietly said it after a sec. then there were long shots of him and clarke staring into the fire, then him staring at octavia with the fire behind him. SO REPENTANT!!!!!!! doesnt your heart BLEED for him??

do you think the network would approve of a name change this late in the game. i have a proposition:

More convinced than ever that 3x12 will conclude with a ‘funeral’ for Lincoln. They might even find his body (wasn’t Ricky on set for 3x12 filming? Hence my desperate hope that he might survive past 3x09?)

Bellamy won’t feel like he deserves to be there, and will take himself off for an alone moment - which will lead perfectly into his emotional breakdown in 3x13 that will lead to the hug.

Orrrrr…none of this will happen BUT MAYBE.
