In 1861, Abraham Lincoln addressed a nation that was divided and on the brink of civil war. Despite knowing the war could not be avoided, Lincoln took the platform of inauguration to make one last, very human appeal to the better angels of our nature. 

In 2017, Burlington jazz artist and composer, Brian McCarthy, created a concept album that explores Lincoln's time and words in a new context. Ken French created this short film about the project.

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
