The film, Lincoln, stars Daniel Day Lewis portraying one of the most important presidents of the United States. Perfectly timed with my sons’ study of the American Civil War, directed by Steven Spielberg, one of their favorite directors, made for a fine family movie adventure.

Lincoln tells the inspiring true story of Abraham Lincoln and his attempt to persuade the House of Representatives to vote for the 13th Amendment. In doing so slavery will be abolished. If Lincoln loses the vote he will have to wait until the war is over. And if the Union wins and the South rejoins the US, the South will surely vote against the Amendment. You probably already know how the vote turns out but you don’t know how Lincoln, Secretary of State William Seward, and others try to persuade Democrats to help pass the Amendment. The time is mid 1860′s and the Civil War is almost over.
