The Lonesome Train: A Musical Legend About Abraham Lincoln by Earl Robinson & Millard Lampell
Folk legends Burl Ives & Earl Robinson present this poetic drama in musical form. An amazing large-scale audio cast and choral presentation which tells of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and thejourney of the train that carried the President's bodyfrom Washington to Springfield, Illinois. The story is told from the perspective of a newspaper reporter exploring the strange rumor thatLincoln was not dead at all, but alive and out among his people; at a black church in Alabama, at a square dance on the Kansas prairie, in an Army hospital ward, and in the waiting crowd at the Springfield depot.
