If you are into history then you will like this movie!
I am a history buff and former history teacher so I liked its realism.
Back room deals, etc which most certainly happened.
The movie is a little long but keeps moving well.
Good protrayal of Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln although the actor playing Lincoln is not tall enough.
Skylar Colfax of South Bend was Speaker of the House and is shown in the movie.
