    Well worth watching

    Even with all the books and DVDs out on Lincoln, this one shines. Very interesting from start to finish.

    This film is exceptional! It relates the real details and emtion

    This film is exceptional! It relates the real details and emtions and the era as they lived. How they reacted to the end of the war, what they felt after, the history is excellent and moving. I have purchased man y of this dvd without the bonus materials (which I though were excellent also)peoplle who puchased it at the charity auctions have told me how geat this was. Thus I got myself one and agreed that it was great!
