Saving Lincoln Movie Online
Saving Lincoln is a dramatic biographical film released on February 13, 2013. It tells the little-known story of Ward Hill Lamon, who was Abraham Lincolns law partner in Danville, Illinois from 1852 until 1857. Lamon accompanied Lincoln to Washington and served as the President's main bodyguard during the Civil War, thwarting several assassination attempts while holding the post of US Marshal. Lincoln considered Lamon a close friend, and Lamon felt likewise. Lincoln sent Lamon to Richmond, Virginia, on Reconstruction business a few days before April 14, 1865, the day that John Wilkes Booth assassinated the President. Director Salvador Litvak and his writing partner, Nina Davidovich Litvak, based their screenplay on their extensive research into Lincolns friendship with Lamon. Saving Lincoln charts their relationship from their initial meeting to Lincolns Presidency. Lamon was a tall, boisterous Southerner who liked to drink whiskey, tell jokes and stories, play the banjo, and wrestle. Despite some pronounced differences between the two men, they shared a fondness for telling jokes and stories, and both felt slavery should be eliminated. Lamon often served as Lincolns private confidant.
