What Do You Know About Abraham Lincoln?
Some of you may know a lot, but as a confused Canadian High school and American University student, my history and political knowledge is all jumbled up and interchanged.
Sometimes the best way to learn about history when you have no idea the story is through a movie. It might not be the most historically accurate, but if you know how the story goes, its easier to read the book or participate in the conversation about it. That is how I felt about Killing Lincoln.
From what I have heard about this movie, I was expecting it to be a big flop. It was not expected to do much because of the mainstream Spielberg movie on the same topic overshadowing this films fire. Also, the book with the exact same title was blasted for being historically inaccurate. This was a two hour event on National Geographic Channel which is a retelling of the conspiracy that led to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States.
Killing Lincoln is a great show, a history buff would sure to love, debate, and argue about. It would be a great gift for dad who is interested in history.
