Having been selected to work in the food department (remember when Bhs sold food?) I also had to don a white paper cap of the old-fashioned nurse's variety. Weirdly we didn't have to tie our hair up under this cap, so it merely sat on top of my head, held in place by two grips. Every week I prayed that nobody I knew would come in and see me dressed like that.
In Petersburg filming took place at locations including the Centre Hill Museum, built in 1823 and which Lincoln visited on that April day in 1865, the Union Train Station, the South Side Rail Depot (which served as the Confederate Headquarters) and the Farmer's Market - no, Lincoln didn't do a little shopping as he left town.
