Davis has obtained many original artifacts from Abraham Lincoln's
funeral as well as other notable funeral items from Lincoln's time
to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery. Attendees
will be able to view original items going back to the Lincoln

gave the last measure of devotion" to their country.
