I am an avid Civil War buff...(um nerd).  LOL  I visit Gettysburg several times a year and there isn't much I don't know about Lincoln, so I will definitely go see it.  I'm just wondering if they will portray the real story, all of it.  He didn't free all of the slaves, and that it was mostly for political gain that he did what he did.  Its like Christopher Columbus, he gets the attention for discovering America, and people over look the fact he wasn't really looking for a new land, he was slave trading.

 first it's a Spielberg film so you know that it will be as true as he can, second I have heard a lot of people saying that it's as true as it can be and that this film will most likely be used in educational circles for it's accuracy.. So, I really hope it is!
