        Comments about PBS Lincoln@Gettysburg DVD:

        This film is saturated with leftist, liberal politicians, speech writers and pundits as Democrats continue to try to claim Lincoln as one of their own. A potentially good film ruined by a liberal slant.

        audio recording needed

        Comments about PBS Lincoln@Gettysburg DVD:

        I really enjoyed the short 1 hour story about Lincoln at Gettysburg. It helped me understand the meaning behind the Gettysburg Address. I think an audio cd recording of it would also make a great gift. A lot of people who drive south in the winter months listen to books on cd. I think PBS would benefit from making some of their video recordings available for audio recordings as well.

        Wonderful Program

        By Pax Americana

        Comments about PBS Lincoln@Gettysburg DVD:

        This is another fine PBS production highlighting an essential event that defines what being an American is all about. It is clear that the program also highlights the unconscious bias of the producers in that clips of modern presidential use of Lincoln's example focus only on Democrats ignoring president's of Lincoln's own party, the Republicans. They feature Obama modifying Lincoln's words to his own purposes by badly paraphrasing the coda, when in fact the fine oration of Regan, and his homage to Lincoln is completely ignored. Irony of ironies is the fact that Obama chose to ignore the invitation to speak at the 150th anniversary event in Gettysburg.
        Great program, excellent production values, but you must watch it with open eyes and ears. Beware the subtle messages, and be aware of the reality of present day politics.
