Abstract:

As 1863 begins, it seems the Civil War will never end. One hundred Union soldiers desert daily and hundreds more die of disease. Opposition to the war begins to spread. Some Northerners resent fighting to free black slaves. Others are furious with Lincoln for devastating Union casualties. Weighed down by the criticism, Lincoln is desperately anxious. Mary, worried about her husband, spends money compulsively, plunging herself into terrible debt. In the final episode, A House Divided tells the story of the last 16 months of war -- of the Battle of Gettysburg, the Union victory that changed the conflict's course, and of Lincoln's battlefield dedication that changed America's conception of itself. It follows Lincoln's final political struggles and charts his differences with his wife. He remains dedicated to bringing the South back into the Union. She speaks privately of revenge. With the surrender at Appomattox and the Civil War finally over, the president tells Mary they can find some happiness again. Just days later, he is shot to death. The brutal assassination exacts a terrible toll on a war-torn nation and the president's emotionally fragile wife.
