Abraham Lincoln Documentary Preview
The History Channel’s Abraham Lincoln documentary is based on the book Leadership: In Turbulent Times by Kearns Goodwin. It will feature interviews from prominent figures such as President Barack Obama, Gen. Stan McCrystal, and renowned historians Christy Coleman, Dr. Allen Guelzo, Dr. Edna Greene Medford, Harold Holzer, Dr. Caroline Janney, and Dr. Catherine Clinton.
The official short synopsis reads as follows. “From the impoverished childhood of Lincoln to his days as a young prairie lawyer and budding politician, through his unlikely election to the presidency and his assassination only five days after the end of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln offers insights into the man consistently ranked by historians and the American people as the country’s greatest president. The lesser-known aspects of Lincoln’s life and leadership are brought to life through live-action scenes where his humility, empathy, resilience, ambition, political acumen, and humor are on full display.”
