The series will dissect the myths that have grown up around Abraham Lincoln, and in doing so, will address outstanding questions surrounding him - questions about race, equality, religion, depression, and sexuality - by carefully interpreting the evidence provided by people who actually knew him.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
