Descrizione

On the seventh of April, 1883, the great city of New York was in mourning. Flags were at half-mast. The bells tolled. Shops were closed, and in the windows the picture of a kind-faced, white-haired man was draped in black. All day long tens of thousands passed by an open coffin in All Souls' Church: Governors and millionnaires, poor women with little children in their arms, workmen in their common clothes, and ragged newsboys - all with aching hearts. The great dailies like the Tribune and Herald, gave six columns to the sad event. Messages of sympathy were cabled from England.

Who was this man whom the world mourned on this April day?

Was he a President? Oh, no. A great general?
