Another Civil War-era film! This time, we’re seeing things through the President’s eyes. President Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis) was one of the most progressive presidents in history. His crowning achievement was abolishing slavery with the 13th Amendment and bringing about the end of the Civil War. The film centers on the early months of 1865 when Lincoln was beginning the most ambitious legislative action of his career. His presidency was defined by what he did from January through April until his untimely death at the theater ended his time as leader of the free world. It’s a deeper look into the president that many define but just one or two facts.
