Event description

Description

Looking to escape the winter weather with the family? Visit the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum on Saturday, January 27, to watch the 1930 classic, Abraham Lincoln. Although many film critics over the years have criticized both the acting and the historical accuracy of the film, this was the first cinema feature about the Civil War to feature sound - and a few surviving veterans of that conflict were able to watch it in their lifetime. After the showing, learn about the truth vs. the fiction in the film, and learn about the reactions of Civil War veterans to the film, too.
