A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.
"When almost immediately upon the close of the war, and the celebration of the hard-earned victory for the Union arms, the nation's chief was stricken down by the hand of an assassin, no citizen could have expressed more sincere sorrow and regret than Dr. Bomberger. He called his Official Board in special session, and together they decided that the church building [Race St. German Evangelical Reformed Church in Philadelphia] should be draped in black." - From page 89 of The Reverend John H.A. Bomberger, Doctor of Divinity; Doctor of Laws, 1817-1890: Centenary Volume.
