February 9, 2009: American Experience: The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln on PBS

On Monday, February 9, 2009, many PBS stations broadcast "The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln" as part of The American Experience series.

PBS says: "This ninety-minute film recounts a great American drama: two tumultuous months when the joy of peace was shattered by the heartache of Lincoln's death. At the heart of the story are two figures who define the extremes of character: Lincoln, who had the strength to transform suffering into infinite compassion, and Booth, who allowed hatred to curdle into destruction."
