Lincoln's Greatcoat: The Unlikely Odyssey of a Presidential Relic Paperback– April 22, 2019

by Reignette G. Chilton (Author)

Brooks Brothers crafted Abraham Lincoln's greatcoat in honor of the president's second inauguration. The coat's wool was "finer than cashmere" and its silk-embroidered lining read, "One Country, One Destiny." Lincoln was wearing the garment when he was assassinated on April 14, 1865. After her husband's death, Mrs. Lincoln gave the greatcoat to a faithful White House doorkeeper. More than a century after her bequest, the coat was returned to Ford's Theatre, but not before it underwent a mysterious and exciting journey. This book recounts that journey as a reminder of the 16th president and his call to "bind up wounds" and care for others.
