On the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 1863, during the Civil War and four and half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the decisive Battle of Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln was invited to deliver the dedication of the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Lincoln’s carefully crafted address invoked the principles of human equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence and redefined the Civil War as a struggle not merely for the Union, but as “a new birth of freedom” that would bring true equality to all of its citizens, and would also create a unified nation.
The Speech That Saved America is the first drama to bring President Abraham Lincoln to life using photo-real CGI. Blended with live actors, this is the untold story of the speech that would forever abolish slavery from the United States of America and ensure there would even be a United States of America.
