Spielberg moved to tears during filming of #LincolnMovie?

Lincoln, a comparison companion book to #LincolnMovie
Oh my, Lincoln is everywhere! The other night, the SO and I were enjoying a yummy sushi night, when I overheard the table beside us in an intense discussion about Lincoln! They were talking about the costumes and everything. Made me happy to know that great history is reaching all sorts of people and educating while entertaining. Now if your kids would love to learn more, there's been a new companion book to the film made titled, “Lincoln: How Abraham Lincoln Ended Slavery in America.”

Harold Holzer, the historian who served as a consultant on the movie and the author of dozens of books on Lincoln and the Civil War, wrote a new book especially for young readers so that they could learn more about the history of Lincoln! It'd be a pretty unique present for the kids this holiday season!

What a great book , a part of history Lincoln was. I've read alot about the movie and it sure is one to be seen by all. Im sure the book is just as interesting as the movie. I love reading about the older days. I think Sally Fields being in the movie is going to be great . Thanks for the info
