A Lock Of Abraham Lincoln’s Hair Taken By His Undertaker After Death



A Lock Of Abraham Lincoln’s Hair Taken By His Undertaker After Death 

Taken post-mortem by his undertaker April 1865. This lock was kept at the U.S. patent office in the late 19th century. It was given to a prominent Washington D.C. family and remained with them until The Gettysburg Museum of History obtained it a few years ago. There were several documented locks of Lincoln’s hair taken at his death bed. This lock was previously unknown to historians. The practice of taking a hair lock from the deceased seems very unusual today. In the 19th century it was a tradition practiced by most people of all classes.
