For the most part it was a quiet, rather somber crowd that stood out in the morning rain and chill on April 1, 1969. But from Maysville to Covington and all points in between thousands stood along the C&O Railroad tracks in Northern Kentucky to say good-bye.

They were watching the funeral train carrying the body of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower as it passed by, headed to Abilene, Kan.

Eisenhower died on March 28, 1969, at the age of 79.
