This documentary weaves together the lives of Abraham and Mary Lincoln - Abraham, the dirt-farmer's son turned Great Emancipator and Mary, the emotionally fragile daughter of wealthy Southern slave-owners. Together, they ascended to the pinnacle of power at a crucial time in the nation's history. Abraham Lincoln's legacy reshaped the nation while the tragedy of his death left Mary reclusive and forgotten.
