The 3rd MI pulls the Lincoln hearse up to Springfield's Fire Station One after the all night vigil that was to be the final event of Saturday’s Lincoln funeral re-enactment was adjusted due to potential overnight rain showers.

With Guard Duty being canceled and rain clouds fast approaching, the 3rd MI "mules" up. The horses were already put away for the night so the 3rd MI pulls the Lincoln Hearse to the Fire Station.
Followed by a crowd of onlookers, the 3rd MI helps move the Lincoln hearse down Capitol Avenue after the all night vigil that was to be the final event of Saturday’s Lincoln funeral re-enactment was adjusted due to potential overnight rain showers. The hearse bearing Lincoln's casket was sheltered at Springfield’s Fire Station One.
The Third Michigan participated in this historical event. Much more than expected.
The Lincoln funeral procession re-enacted Sunday, May 3, 2015
Springfield was transformed back to May 1865 when the solemn funeral procession for President Abraham Lincoln was re-enacted, using nearly the same route between the Old State Capitol and Oak Ridge Cemetery that was used 150 years ago.
