First published in 1865, "The Assassinated President" is a book of hymns and prayers written by Joseph Seiss and published by St. John's Church, Philadelphia for a service commemorating the death of American President Abraham Lincoln. Joseph Augustus Seiss (March 18, 1823 - June 20, 1904) was an American theologian and Lutheran minister most famous for his contributions to pyramidology and dispensationalism. His best-known work is "The Great Pyramid of Egypt, Miracle in Stone: Secrets and Advanced Knowledge" (1877), considered a primary text of pyramidology. Contents include: "The Devotional Exercises", "The Confession of Sins", "The General Prayer", "Second Hymn", "The Discourse", "The Closing Ceremony", and "The Final Prayer". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
