Summary
Collection of four documentaries providing a portrait of Abraham Lincoln and significant events that surrounded him. Utilizing interviews with leading Lincoln biographers, Lincoln explores the inner conflicts that plagued and inspired the man who called himself "the loneliest man in the world." In a ploy that was ultimately foiled by the Secret Service, Stealing Lincoln's Body documents the 1876 plot to steal Lincoln's body and hold it for ransom. The Hunt for John Wilkes Booth follows Booth, and his co-conspirator David Herold, as they elude more than 10,000 federal troops for twelve days after assassinating Lincoln. Sherman's March re-creates the 285 mile march from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia, on which Sherman said the effort needed to "make old and young, rich and poor, feel the hard hand of war."
