June 8, 2018 will mark the 50th anniversary of the ‘RFK funeral train’. Up to one million Americans stood along the railway, paying their respects as the train slowly made its way from New York City to Washington, D.C. Rein Jelle Terpstra reconstructs this important day in American history by using vernacular photographs, film stills, and the personal recollections of eyewitnesses. The book comes in custom made hard slipcase and includes a 16 pages booklet with never before published work of Paul Fusco, Magnum photographer, who was on the train photographing the people alongside the tracks.
