After Robert Kennedy was murdered, his body was transported by train from New York to his burial at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C.

Seth Beckerman was a student journalist at George Washington University in 1968 who was invited to travel on the funeral train. Seth let me draw from his photographs of mourners who lined the tracks for the 200 mile length of the journey.
