Performed 1884-10-15 (to judge from description in Musical Times of 1884 November 1 whose date placement is relative, and which further implies that this was the premiere). Based on Whitman's ode to the memory of President Abraham Lincoln (as are Hindemith and Sessions' later When Lilacs Last ... Requiems.)
