Lincoln

So, watched 'Lincoln' ...

I am a pretty big Lincoln fan, I guess is the word. I've read literally dozens and dozens of book on him. I can recite the Gettysburg Address as the drop of a hat. I hold him in the highest regard and consider him the person throughout history I most admire. With that said, I held off watching Steven Spielberig's Lincoln until last night. I didn't want to be disappointed; I didn't want to see Lincoln portrayed as not what we know he was. I didn't want it to be not right for someone like me who holds Lincoln in such esteem.
