I Saw "Lincoln" Twice On Opening Day
Edmonton, Alberta T5R 5Z2
November XVIIth, MMXII
Hon. Jeff Johnson, MLA
Minister of Education,
Progressive Conservative, Athabasca-Sturgeon-RedH2O
Led by an all-star cast including Double Academy Award (TM) Winners Daniel Day-Lewis as XVIth President Of The United States, Abraham Lincoln, Republican-Illinois & Sally Field as First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln, & Academy Award (TM) Winner Tommy Lee Jones, "Lincoln" is truly a film with a sense of history. It not only shows how President Lincoln won the war, it showcases for history students the abomination that is slavery & how the President did whatever "horse trading" in terms of political deals it took to get the XIIIth Amendment to the United States Constitution passed to abolish it.
