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 Movie!!!
8 November 2002 | by terryh-1See all my reviews

This is a Great Movie!!! I recorded it when it was shown on TV but would really like to purchase a good copy on VHS. I can not locate it on any media (DVD preferred but since it is no longer on vhs, dvd is out of the question) Campbell Scott is an excellent actor and was excellent in this movie. Jason Robards was also as well as Lukas Haas. I recommend for anyone especially Civil War buffs.
