We do not think that, this impersonation of Lincoln is as good as that in former Vitagraph pictures
A wartime picture. A mother, played by Mrs. Maurice, is shown as giving six sons to the Union. The seventh is timid, deserts during a battle and is condemned to death. Lincoln hears the old mother's plea and gives her back the seventh son. We do not think that, this impersonation of Lincoln is as good as that in former Vitagraph pictures, especially that in "The Battle Hymn." He seems to be not thoughtful, but heavy and slow because of dullness. The makeup for this role is perfect. The audience watched the picture with its home scenes, battle scenes and White House scenes, with close attention and applauded. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, April 20, 1912
