Reception of President Lincoln at Cleveland

Lincoln arrived at Euclid Street Station at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. An open carriage pulled by four white horses then carried him through the crowded Cleveland Street. A procession including a miniature ship carrying a cannon, firemen, the Cleveland Grays, the Cleveland Light Artillery Brigade and many others followed the president's carriage to the Weddell House. Once he arrived at the hotel and was welcomed, Lincoln stood upon the second-story balcony to address the masses gathered on the street below.
