Searching for Lincoln

Searching for Lincoln is a unique, well-researched, thought-provoking documentary examining the life—and the legacy—of the man considered one of, if not the 'greatest American President' all across the nation’s political spectrum.

Searching for Lincoln is a unique, well-researched, thought-provoking documentary examining the life—and legacy—of the man considered by many the greatest American President. This painstakingly explored, thoroughly validated account exposes the intentions and actions by which the 16th President commenced the bloodiest and cruelest war America has endured to date. Even more important, however, it illustrates how his victory in that war changed the federal government of the Founding Fathers to what Lincoln called a national government free from constitutional restrictions and how this has led to America’s present political, economic and social disorders. With the end of commemorations of the Sesquicentennial of what is wrongly termed the “Civil War,” Searching for Lincoln brings to light historical accounts of the man and his views on matters of race, slavery, equality, the nature of government, the Constitution and the waging of war on a people whom Lincoln himself called “Americans.” Through his own words and those of his contemporaries together with official United States records, Lincoln lives again—and, with the help of modern historians, we are able to see past “what everybody knows” and into the heart and soul of the man himself. It is an illuminating journey for those who seek the truth.
