Sketch of Lincoln in death is going on sale

As Lincoln’s body lay in state in New York on its way back to Illinois for burial, a Frenchman named Pierre Morand managed to sketch the dead president’s face. The owner of the Abraham Lincoln Book Shop is putting Morand’s finished drawing up for sale, with an asking price of $175,000.
