In Anticipation-


The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. 
The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion.
  As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. -Abe Lincoln


  1. I for one, will be lining up to watch!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you Gaye.

  2. Incredible. I'm always in awe of art that makes me nervous about an outcome I already know. The scenes with his young son were beautiful and revealing.

  3. I understand that Daniel Day-Lewis required very little makeup for this part. when he initially demurred playing the part, the director said, "Why don't you take a look in the mirror?"

  4. All things Lincoln for me. I for some reason was obsessed with Mary Todd in my formative years. I can not think of anyone better equipped to play her for madness-and sympathy that the brilliant and unsung Sally Field. pgt

  5. The text to give a stimulating orientation is the Bancroft, Pulitzer, and National Book Award winning "Fiery Trial," by Eric Foner, our primary guide to Reconstruction.

  6. I had to smile, a few weeks ago my son was told the same thing....
    I can't wait to see the movie!
