Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award® winner Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln, a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.
As part of the Social Action Campaign for Lincoln, Participant Media collaborated with Disney's Education team to create curricula for high school students and teachers around the themes of leadership and civil engagement using content from the film and from Public Affairs' companion book, Lincoln: A President for the Ages.
