Ronald Wilson Reagan Funeral : National Day of Mourning

June 5th, 2004 Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States, died at 1:00 p.m. PDT at his home in Los Angeles, California. Born February 6, 1911, he was 93 years old. This gallery covers the Reagan's Formal Funeral Procession in horse-drawn caisson along Constitution Avenue to the U.S. Capitol. For 24 hours the President's remains lay in State in Rotunda of U.S. Capitol for public to pay respects. This gallery is permanently dedicated for the public to pay respect to our Nation's beloved President. I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. - Ronald Reagan

The crowds line the streets to watch the American flag adorned casket proceed by. One detail of the service that weighed heavy on everyone’s mind was the actual weight of the casket. Tipping the scales at over 700 pounds, the marble inlayed coffin certainly proved a challenge for the The Old Guard Soldiers.
