Ronald Wilson Reagan Funeral : National Day of Mourning

June 5th, 2004 Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States, died at 1:00 p.m. PDT at his home in Los Angeles, California. Born February 6, 1911, he was 93 years old. This gallery covers the Reagan's Formal Funeral Procession in horse-drawn caisson along Constitution Avenue to the U.S. Capitol. For 24 hours the President's remains lay in State in Rotunda of U.S. Capitol for public to pay respects. This gallery is permanently dedicated for the public to pay respect to our Nation's beloved President. I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. - Ronald Reagan
