Grief is a powerful thing. It's extremely personal and can make us act in ways unforeseen. So what happens when an entire nation experiences a loss, as they did in 1865 when President Lincoln was assassinated? The powers that were at the time decided to give the people an outlet for their grief with a small tour of part of the country featuring their dead president. It would be known as the Lincoln Ghost Train, which would serve as a public display of grief and all of it's strange and unexplained forms.
