Lincoln@gettysburg

Episode 1 of 1

In 1863 Abraham Lincoln proved himself a master of a new frontier-not on the battlefields of the Civil War, but in his "high-tech" command center: the War Department Telegraph Office, America's first "Situation Room." The "Internet" of the 19th century, the telegraph gave Lincoln new powers to reshape leadership and wield personal control across distant battlefields. The results of Lincoln's pioneering experiment in electronic leadership led to the rebirth of America on the fields of Gettysburg... both in the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War, and in a few words that recast the American ideal as a national creed: the Gettysburg Address. LINCOLN@ GETTYSBURG will unfold the greatest turning point in American history: the rebirth of a nation and the dawn of the information age.
