Abraham And Mary Lincoln, A House Divided: America

We Are Elected

Season 1, Episode 2 of 6

The Lincoln marriage is both tempestuous and passionate: she has a temper; he suffers bouts of depression. But they share a powerful political ambition that sends Abraham to the House of Representatives and later, with the country splitting apart over slavery, sees him run for president. On election night, when the results finally come in, Abraham goes home and tells his wife, "Mary, Mary, we are elected! "
