Civil War Sesquicentennial Model

From 2011 to 2015, Americans mark the 150th anniversary, or "sesquicentennial" of the Civil War. Breyer Animal Creations commemorates the occasion with a model of Lincoln's favorite horse Robin, affectionately known as "Old Bob."  One of several mounts Lincoln owned during his lifetime, Old Bob was a chestnut horse who carried the future president during his career as a lawyer.

Soon after the Confederate surrender to Federal forces in April, 1865, Lincoln was assassinated by Southern radical John Wilkes Booth at Washington, D.C.'s Ford Theatre. Draped in traditional black, Old Bob trudged sadly behind Lincoln's hearse in the late president's funeral procession.
