President Lincoln’s Horse Old Robin

Photograph shows, Rev. Henry Brown, with Abraham Lincoln’s horse on the day of Lincoln’s funeral.

Mr Brown was a minister and an occasional handyman for the family, he led Lincoln’s favorite horse Robin — also known as “Old Bob” — behind the president’s coffin. Old Bob’s stirrups held a pair of Lincoln’s boots turned backward.
