Thanks exreo. I was wondering if it was any good.

I overheard two people talking the other night saying it was great, a shoe in for an Academy Award.
I look at who produced it and wonder how historically accurate it really is. Lincoln was not a good President.If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what will never be. (Thomas Jefferson 1816)

At the risk of disagreeing with GA, there was most certainly NOT more slavery and abuse in the North. It is correct to say, however, that the war was not about slaves. Rather, it was thier version of class warfare, more or less. The South had no more fear of free men than I do of green energy. The issue was how to resolve the injustice without collapsing thier economy.
There was a huge difference in economics between the North and South. It was easy for a northern industrialist to say he was against slavery because he was no where near as dependant on them, especially given the fact that they had the money to hire former slaves. The Southern farmers thought it was a bunch of out-of-touch rich fat cats making demands with regards to a situation that they only had a tunnel-vision view of; thier own.
The war was about the freedom to persue the matter as they saw fit. Not the retention of slaves.
As for the movie, hollywood is rarely history. To be fair, the movie does not make a claim of historical authenticity. It is what we call historical fiction, one of my mom's favorite genres of literature."Social networking" is an oxymoron.

I thought all the libs (not you because I believe you're a conservative) say we can't legislate morality? How can we legislate blacks being equal to whites then?

Morality is a God given thing. It can't be legislated. But a Government can pass laws making it illegal to abuse other people. Enforcement is a whole other ball game.GOVERNMENT
