The stereograph features a black and white image of two female children kneeling in prayer at a memorial for assassinated presidents, Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, and William McKinley. Portraits of each of the presidents are hung with flags, ribbons, and flowers surrounding them. The death date of each president is hung beneath the portraits. A floral arrangement sits on the ground and is adorned with an inscription. A woman stands behind the display and is dressed as an angel. The albumen print is mounted on a cream card with rounded edges.
