Synopsis
This is the second part of a three-video, six-hour program that originally aired February 19-21, 2001, as part of the acclaimed PBS series The American Experience. The program focuses on the marriage of Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln, and is one of the first documentaries to do so. This documentary postulates that Mary was indeed a key to Lincoln's success. The second part covers the early years in the White House, as the nation was fragmenting and war was breaking out. Featured are recreated battle scenes, White House dinners, cabinet meetings, and shopping sprees Mary went on to upgrade the shabby presidential mansion. Narrated by David McCullough, the program also features interviews with scholars and readings by actors David Morse and Holly Hunter. Highlights include period photographs. ~ Steve Blackburn, All Movie Guide
