MALE SPEAKER: And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder.
And I looked and behold, was death saying, come and see.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: History prefers legends to men.
It prefers nobility to brutality.
Soaring speeches to quiet deeds.
History remembers the battles but forgets the blood.
However history remembers me before I was a president, it
shall only remember a fraction of the truth.
MALE SPEAKER: And Hell followed me.
-There is darkness everywhere, Mr. Lincoln.
-My mother was murdered.
HENRY STURGES: I can see your rage burning.
Tip the balance for the good of all mankind.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: I shall kill them all.
-It's time we had a nation of our own.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: This war ends tonight.
HENRY STURGES: Only the living can kill the dead.
