    Cherry @the movies - Review of Lincoln

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CherryLA told me, 'I didn't realize that Abraham Lincoln had other kids, that the Emancipation Proclamation wasn't bundled with the 13th Amendment and why he supported freedom for slaves. I always thought it was just because he wanted to disrupt the South's economy and not because he thought slavery was wrong.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    The 2012 AFI Fest Gala screening of Lincoln was one of the highlights of the festival.  I give Steven Spielberg's historical film 'Lincoln' two thumbs up!  The dramatic retelling of how President Abraham Lincoln was able to enact the 13th Amendment to set my people FREE was moving!

     

    Synapsids: As the Civil War continues to rage, America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves.
