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

Excellent movie
22 October 2006 | by llbaldwin622See all my reviews

I like to show this to my 7th graders at the end of the Civil War Unit, however our copy is poor and we need an updated copy. We have a taped copy from TV including commercials. This is an excellent movie and very appropriate for school. It's a shame that good material like this is not readily available for classroom use. The movie is well put together and it gives a true picture of what the war was probably like. It helps the students visualize the War. The actors did an excellent job portraying the time period and the struggles that ensued with the war. I know there are more recent movies depicting the war, however they are rated such that we cannot show them in the classroom. If anyone has any ideas, please pass along your ideas.
