Pictures From Reagan's Funeral Procession
f zero | 6/9/04 | f zero

Posted on 06/09/2004 9:16:00 PM PDT by pettifogger

We arrived at 12th and Constitution at 2PM set up Freeper camp and then took shifts watching the kids in the Smithsonian. The crowd slowly grew until it was 10-15 people deep all along the procession route. All in attendance were polite, somber and super patriotic. Enjoy the photos.

As promised, this is from my brother, f zero. He and I, along with our parents, children (5), (3 ½) and (3) and f zero’s wife attended and were awed by the spectacle and admiration of the entire crowd. Long wait, but all were appropriately deferential and polite, as befitting the occasion.

sharing these nice clear pictures! Terrific job

Uh, absolutely cannot -- repeat cannot -- take a single iota of credit. F zero took all of these pictures and, in teaching me how to post pictures, I ended up signing in and voila, we posted under my screen name. I only WISH I had gotten that talent, friends.

Anyway, they are great pictures. I'll end up developing my own sometime around Christmas.

Thanks, bro.

Great photos! I was extremely fortunate to witness the cortege today then proceed down Constitution Avenue to the U.S. Capitol and pay my respects in person. Fighter jets roared overhead while we were passing the National Gallery of Art. That many jets flying directly overhead was an incredible sight and sound experience.

Once we made it onto the U.S. Capitol grounds, we walked outside the building up on the portico overlooking the city west toward the Washington Monument. I've never done that at night and it was a beautiful sight.
I can't remember being in the Rotunda at night, either. It is beautifully lit. Everyone of course is focused on the casket and processing so many thoughts and emotions, but I hope they also remember to look up.

Thank you, Mr. President. I'm forever grateful.

Nice photos.

All those before "Nancy Reagan Waving To The Crowd" were viewable.

This outpouring should serve to inspire all right-minded Americans that hope still remains for our country and the cause of freedom.

Thanks.

Beautiful pictures!

Brit Hume of FNC likened President Reagan's funeral procession to that of Abraham Lincoln. Similar, indeed.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

I saw him on his way here on the West Coast - the street was lined with people as the motorcade passed by on its way to Pt. Mugu. So nice to know that he is enveloped by supporters in DC just as he was here in California.

Wonderful!!

I missed everything today (they do like you to show up at school sometimes) and am just catching up on CSPAN now. It is great to see the pictures.

I'm one of those rare people, a native Washingtonian (tho I'm on the left coast now) and I bet it was hot as hades there today, wasn't it? Didn't you just want to melt in the metro station?

Thanks again for the great pictures.

Your brother's photos are so good it's as if we're right there with you. Thank you for sharing them.

I have two questions for you: Why did you choose the screen name "pettifogger", and did you remember to say "Arigatu" to the Japanese TV station? :o)
