MOODY, TEARFUL NIGHT sculpture fundraiser

In 2008 the Lincoln Depot Foundation commissioned American sculptor Richard Masloski to create a larger than life-size sculpture of President Abraham Lincoln giving his speech at the Peekskill Train Depot on February 19, 1861. Thus, began a strong relationship between Richard and our Museum. A retrospective of Richard’s Lincoln and Civil War Sculptures was exhibited during the 2015 season, including MOODY, TEARFUL NIGHT and Richard participated in many events and fundraisers throughout the years. Unfortunately, Richard was involved in a freak accident and passed away in 2018. The Lincoln Depot Foundation was recently offered the unique opportunity to acquire the one and only bronze casting of his wonderful sculpture, MOODY, TEARFUL NIGHT . We see no more fitting tribute to our dear friend than to be able to display this sculpture in the Museum he loved so deeply, enabling generations to come to fully enjoy Richard Masloski’s powerful masterpiece, MOODY, TEARFUL NIGHT! Please help us make this dream come true! THANK YOU! 

MOODY, TEARFUL NIGHT April 14, 1865
President Lincoln, just moments before, had been shot by John Wilkes Booth.

A doctor and four soldiers carry him from Ford's Theatre to the rooming house across the street, where hours later he will die. 

The Lincoln Depot Foundation and Museum  commemorates Abraham Lincoln's inaugural visit and stop in Peekskill, NY, and highlights  Peekskill's connection within the greater context of the Civil War Period,  focusing on the life and times of Abraham Lincoln, New York's significant role in the war, and the local Underground Railroad and their place in history.
