| honor for all those in Civil War
I saw this movie on TV many years ago. I remember it well for two reasons. First, it honored Abraham Lincoln and all those who lived -and died - during that difficult time in our nation's history. It is important to remember lessons learned during that time so that we don't repeat them. Having grown up in the deep south, I am very aware of the lingering effects of the Civil War. Now that I live north of the Mason-Dixon line, I am saddened that most non-Southerners do not have the same passionate honor for the Civil War. Most non-Southerners think it is silly to see the South's efforts to keep the Civil War remembrances alive - especially since the South was defeated. For the South, it was a war fueled not by military might but by passion to protect a culture from the onslaught of northern industrial control for power. In the end, the Northern army raped the South and laid waste her grandeur. The battle scars are still evident in many Southern towns - reminders of a violence both internal and external. While slavery was indeed part of the war (and an evil practice in my opinion), it was secondary in the minds of Southerners behind the anger towards northern aggression. The movie was also memorable because my brother called me to tell me that our relative was playing the role of the Governor of Pennsylvania. Very memorable indeed.
