You're about to be an eyewitness to the ten crucial days in Abraham Lincoln's life, including:
  • A tragic loss that sets a boy on a course for greatness
  • A career sacrificed to protest an unjust war
  • A state resorting to treason to preserve slavery
  • A president who learns the most difficult decisions are made alone
  • And a promise made to every citizen that American's salves will be free.

  • These days and five others shook Lincoln's world - and yours.
