A terrifically indepth biographical account of this amazing man who abolished slavery in a time of unsettled political and religious upsurge of an emerging united states. The narrator allows the viewer to form their own moral judgments of this renowned political leader as he explores some of the major influences that shaped Lincoln's view of his immediate world, and his own participation within it. There are considerate pauses in the narrator's commentary that invite the viewer to examine and reflect upon the vast array of information that he provides, so although it is a lengthy biographical journey, goes at a pace the viewer can keep up with.

Stunning scenic props and old/new Virginian landscape are featured in the documentary, as well as archive photographs and sketches of his native British relatives and his own wife and children. To understand anything about American history, then this documentary makes for essential viewing material, whether you are a general inquirer of the past or not. Preserving the union goes a lot further out than just what this great man tried to achieve for the sake of democracy, it delves deep into the crevices of his judicial background and the sweat and tremors of divided social and political support for the abolition of slavery in addition.

I need to watch this again. At first viewing I found it absorbing and illuminating. I learned much that I didn't previously know about the great man and I have read a great deal about him. The film places his life in the context of the times he lived in and this enables a much greater empathic understanding. Very good.

Mr Lincoln was a pragmatic politician and dealt in the art of the possible
His main goal was always the Preservation of the Union
I regard him as the finest politician ever who,s preservation of the Union destroyed slavery and protected world democracy
through interventions by his United Nation which may not have been possible if the nation was devided

As I bought it for a present I haven't watched the dvd, but was impressed that it was delivered on time and in perfect condition - not all things that are posted arrive safely!
