Abraham Lincoln worked his way up from humble beginnings to become the 16th President of the United States. He served in the White House in the midst of a national crisis. Though ill prepared for the trauma of a civil war, he adapted himself to the circumstances to become an extraordinary leader. A flexible man of thought and a master of words, he is best known for signing the Emancipation Proclamation and writing the Gettysburg Address. For all his deeds and efforts in freeing the slaves and preserving the Union, Abraham Lincoln became the heroic martyr of the Civil War.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN came of age while living and working as a private citizen in Springfield, Illinois. It was here that he chose to settle down, build a life for himself and his family, and work hard to achieve success. Lincoln was a man who experienced the same hopes, dreams, and challenges of life still experienced by people today.
Through the use of remarkable storytelling and top-tier historical recreations, A Journey to Greatness brings history to life and captures the portrait of a humble man who was destined for greatness.
Join Lincoln on his dramatic journey and learn about his formative years in Springfield, Illinois. Lincoln arrived in Springfield alone, with no money, not even a place to stay – but when he left Springfield twenty-four years later, he was headed for the White House, and the pages of history.
FILMED IN STUNNING HIGH definition, A Journey to Greatness, is the theatrical documentary produced for Lincoln Home National Historic Site.
