This dramatization begins with Lincoln's first inaugural address. We see his relationship with his wife and their young son Tad, Lincoln receiving news of the firing on Fort Sumter, disagreements within his cabinet, their dark anticipation of Lee's victory at Gettysburg, Lincoln's characteristic quiet at the news of victory there, the President's pardoning of a Wisconsin boy who's fallen asleep at his post, Tad's illness, and the Gettysburg address.
