Mr. Lincoln (1952) was an ambitious five-part biographical drama by renowned author, screenwriter and film critic James Agee that revealed the early life of America's foremost political icon. This timely documentary includes three additional Civil War-themed Omnibus presentations: Uncle Tom's Cabin(1955), an excerpt from the Harriet Beecher Stowe classic adapted by Ellen Violett; The Four Flags of the Confederacy (1955), a 14-minute historical feature by Arnold Sundgaard; and Lee at Gettysburg (1957), a three-act play.
