Abraham Lincoln - His Life And Legacy
Join HISTORY in a celebration of our nation’s sixteenth president. This comprehensive four-DVD set presents a complex portrait of a man who many consider to be our greatest commander-in-chief, but who considered himself ’’the loneliest man in the world.’’ Bringing to life the tumultuous times in which Lincoln led his country, some of his finest Civil War moments, and his final hours, HISTORY examines the Lincoln legacy in a modern context. ABRAHAM LINCOLN: HIS LIFE AND LEGACY is the ultimate tribute to the ultimate president and includes the following seven documentaries:
Volume 1: Lincoln
Innovative, intimate and emotionally charged, LINCOLN explores the inner conflicts that plagued and inspired the President who called himself “The loneliest man in the world.” Academy Award-winning producer Vikram Jayanti (When We Were Kings) goes inside a life scarred by loss and a mind ravaged by tragedy to uncover a man whose grand achievements were fueled by his own personal turmoil. Using interviews with leading Lincoln biographers such as Gore Vidal, Jan Morris, and Harold Holzer, as well as Andrew Solomon, National Book Award winning author of The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression, LINCOLN presents a profound and insightful meditation on a man few knew seen through the eyes of the President himself.

Volume 3: Sherman’s March
General William Tecumseh Sherman’s total war strategy against the South helped end the Civil War and forever changed the nation. HISTORY explores Sherman’s brutal and effective campaign, which not only saved the Lincoln Presidency, the Union, and thousands of lives, but also made Sherman one of the most hated and controversial figures in American history.
In November 1864, Sherman and an army of 60,000 troops began their month-long march from Atlanta to Savannah, and then up through the Carolinas. Burning crops, destroying bridges and railroads, and laying waste to virtually everything in his path, Sherman moved relentlessly to the sea, crushing the South’s will to fight. He led his soldiers over 650 miles in less than 100 marching days, losing only 600 men along the way. When it was all said and done, Sherman achieved his goal: to expedite the end of the American Civil War.
Through cutting-edge CGI battle scenes and dramatizations based on contemporary sources, SHERMAN’S MARCH mixes the sweep of large-scale military strategy with intimate stories of the women, the slaves, and the soldiers who fought on both sides. Shot in hi-definition, SHERMAN’S MARCH is both a lavish documentary and a gripping portrait of the complicated man who coined the phrase “War is Hell” and came to be called “the father of modern, total warfare.”
Volume 4: The Hunt for John Wilkes Booth
For 12 days in April 1865, as terror gripped the nation, thousands of federal troops, detectives, and police scoured the country in search of the assassin who shot President Abraham Lincoln. HISTORY tells the compelling story behind the conspiracy to decapitate the government by assassinating Lincoln, his Vice President and his Secretary of State, and the manhunt that ensued. THE HUNT FOR JOHN WILKES BOOTH takes viewers through the Maryland countryside, across the Potomac River, and finally into northern Virginia as Booth and co-conspirator David Herold elude their captors. Often fictionalized, this is the true story of this harrowing time, gleaned from news reports, trial transcripts, and a diary kept by the man who pulled the trigger--John Wilkes Booth. Shot in riveting real-time style along Booth and Herold’s 60-mile escape route, THE HUNT FOR JOHN WILKES BOOTH follows the trail of one of America’s earliest assassins--a man who changed history.
