Archives Wishes Lincoln a Happy Birthday
Posted at 4:56 p.m. on Feb. 10
Presidents Day: It’s more than just a long weekend dedicated to selling mattresses. To scope out part of the legacy of one of the two POTI who make up this most American of holidays, the National Archives is showing Jake Boritt’s “The Gettysburg Story” on Wednesday at its William G. McGowan Theater to commemorate President Abraham Lincoln’s Feb. 12 birthday.
Boritt’s film, screened last year on PBS, is a 60-minute chronicle of aerial, time-lapse and 3-D animation photography that tells the story of what happened on one of the bloodiest days of Lincoln’s presidency and helped turn the tide in the Civil War. Narrated by actor Stephen Lang (who starred in the films “Gettysburg” and “Gods and Generals”), the movie will be followed by a discussion with Boritt, Lang and Gabor Boritt, a Civil War scholar.
The screening starts at 7 p.m and is free to attend.
