Ive written several times about my distaste for revisionist history, specifically those who would negatively portray Lincoln's true intentions relative to slavery which was a most complicated knot to un do magnified even more by the horrors of the civil war where well over 600,000 people perished. It is put into quite clear light in this movie of Lincoln's long term feelings about slavery and what he had to do with the right opportunities politically. The man had a steadfast guile.
Had Lincoln lived I believe the 100 years of Jim Crow laws would have never manifested.. but we will never know and unfortunately the matter was left up to honorable men of another century to finish.
This was a great movie. Spielberg's direction, John Williams Soundtrack and a cast of characters including a stunning job by Tommie Lee Jones rounded off this superb film!
