Storyline

This is a period piece about how Lincoln came to write the Gettysburg Address. It's fictionalized to show the points of view of both North & South, and unlike most Civil War films, it doesn't take sides. While the opinions of the day are espoused, ultimately it is an homage to America, and all it purported to stabd for then, as well as now. Written by Whitney Equality Weddell

Great Civil War Movie
20 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie in my history class, and had it not been for some ride people in there laughing, I would have been crying. Usually I am not very impressed by made for TV movies about historical events, but this one was good. Some of the acting was a little weak, but the story makes up for that. I appreciate that in something that is made for TV.
