Overview

Nearly 150 years after the death of Abraham Lincoln, the filmmakers at The History Channel compare the many legends surrounding the beloved U.S. president against the cold hard facts in order to get a comprehensive portrait of Lincoln's life and character. The fallacies are nearly as fascinating as the extraordinary truths as early archival materials are compared to innovative theories and discoveries, and noted historians grapple with Lincoln's defining role as the "Great Emancipator." It is true that Lincoln's writings were powerful enough to sway an entire nation, and how can we even be sure of what he looked like? Discover the answers to these questions and more in a documentary that aims to untangle the many mysteries surrounding the sixteenth president of the United States of America, and the first American president ever to be assassinated.
