Saving Lincoln
Saving Lincoln
SAVING LINCOLN tells the little-known story of our 16th President through the eyes of his long-time friend and law colleague, Ward Hill Lamon. Lamon, a Southerner, was a banjo-player, lawyer, singer and pistol-packing jokester who appointed himself Lincoln’s bodyguard after the first assassination attempt in 1861, and who foiled repeated attempts on the President’s life throughout their first years in Washington. Lamon often served as Lincoln’s private confidant during the darkest hours of the Civil War. Lincoln was never far from him – save that fateful night at Ford’s Theatre.

SAVING LINCOLN captures the essence of Abraham Lincoln, a man who was humble yet ambitious, hilariously funny yet desperately sad.

This unique feature film was shot entirely on a single green screen stage and com-posited into vintage photographs from the Civil War era, resulting in 3D environments that inform the story as much as house it.
