The progress of the war is seen through Lincoln’s eyes, a very human figure as he contends with Generals who won’t fight and politicians who scheme to usurp him. His wife (Mary Tyler Moore) is driven to the edge of madness by the death of her son and her deteriorating mental health causes him great pain. But after a war more ferocious and bloody than anyone has imagines possible, Lincoln lives just long enough to see his vision realizes before his life is cut tragically by an assassins bullet.
