    ‘Lincoln’ – A Great Piece of History

    My family went to see “Lincoln,” the much advertised and critically-acclaimed new film by Steven Spielberg. The plot centered on one particular phase of the president’s legacy. That was the abolition of slavery and how he got it done. All of us were taught the Emancipation Proclamation was the vehicle that abolished slavery in America. That just is not true and Spielberg brilliantly showed us the real story. That’s right it was not the Emancipation Proclamation.
