At 6’4″, Lincoln stood out even more by wearing a top hat. Lincoln had a second black silk band added to every top hat to symbolize his deep ongoing mourning and remembrance of his son, Willie, who had died of typhoid fever. The last time he wore this hat was that fateful day when he attended Ford’s Theatre on April 14, 1865.
