The Lincoln Funeral Train Came Through Shiloh Ohio

Private Hiram Terman came home to Shiloh, Ohio at the end of 1864 and was recuperating from 17 months at Belle Island and Andersonville.  He saw Abraham Lincoln when the President reviewed the troops of General Joseph Hooker in 1862 around the time of the battle of Chancellorsville.  I wonder if he found the strength to get up and see the Funeral Train come through the Shiloh train station?  What thoughts may have gone through his mind as he endured the nausea, muscle pain, diarrhea, and heart problems of his broken down body?
