Named for one of Abraham Lincoln's signature speeches "A House Divided" explores the lives and turbulent times of Abraham and Mary Lincoln. Through first-person narratives and vintage historic photos, award-winning filmmaker David Grubin, carefully weaves together the disparate tales of a dirt farmer's son, Lincoln, and a wealthy Southern slave-owner's daughter, Mary Todd. Together, the Lincolns ascended to the pinnacle of power at the most difficult time in the nation's history, the Civil War. However, their fame was not achieved without great sacrifice. Abraham Lincoln's legacy as the Great Emancipator united a fractured nation, while the death of their two sons and her husband's assassination ultimately left Mary Todd shattered, reclusive and forgotten. Three DVD disks. Running time: approximately 6 hours.
