Despite his suspension of habeas corpus during the Civil War, many citizens and historians consider Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, to have been the nation's greatest. Certainly no president faced more daunting challenges. Using archival daguerreotypes and lithographs, as well as on-location footage from Gettysburg and Washington, DC's Ford Theater, where John Wilkes Booth assassinated Lincoln, this 35-minute video provides an overview of the life and career of "honest Abe," and analyzes his skill in military matters. Pulitzer Prize-winning Princeton University historian James McPherson narrates. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
