Overview

One of the most popular and respected presidents in the history of the United States of America, President Abraham Lincoln remains a mystery to even the most dedicated historians. In this documentary, the filmmakers at The History Channel unearth the transcriptions of Lincoln's official biographer William Herndon in order to shed some much-needed light on the fallen-president's mystery-shrouded past. Shortly after the president was assassinated, Herndon began conducting interviews with over 250 of Lincoln's closest friends and family members in a quest that would ultimately stretch three decades.

Now, for the very first time, Herndon's tireless research is revealed to the public in a film that aims to finally resole the mystery of Lincoln's formative years.

    Well Worth Viewing
