Living With Lincoln

HBO

Narrated by director Peter Kunhardt, LIVING WITH LINCOLN chronicles how five generations of one American family have shared the "glorious burden" of collecting, preserving and documenting a vital archive relating to Abraham Lincoln. Beginning with great-grandfather Frederick Hill Meserve, Kunhardt's family collected photographs that might have been lost forever, including now-iconic portraits used on the penny, the five-dollar bill and even the image used to create Lincoln's likeness on Mount Rushmore. LIVING WITH LINCOLN explores the family's physical and emotional connection to the president, revealing a personal side of the immortal leader through a modern-day journey of discovery, obsession, depression and despair.

Directed by Peter Kunhardt and Brian Oakes.
Edited by Brian Oakes, Chris Chuang and George Kunhardt.
