One man stands tall, destined to guide a fractured United States through its greatest crisis. In this riveting adaptation of Robert Sherwood's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, follow the life of a young Abe Lincoln in Illinois. Working as a woodsman taming the Western frontier, young Lincoln (Raymond Massey) falls in love with Ann Rutledge (Mary Howard) but weds the mercurial Mary Todd (Ruth Gordon). As he develops a law practice, Lincoln is drawn to politics--and the seminal debates with Stephen Douglas (Gene Lockhart)--as the struggle to end slavery in America threatens to erupt into war.
