Saving Lincoln is the unforgettable true story of President Abraham Lincoln and his closest friend, U.S. Marshal Ward Hill Lamon. When the first assassination attempt occurs on the way to Washington in 1861, banjo-playing, pistol-wielding Lamon appoints himself Lincoln's bodyguard. From this unique perspective, Lamon witnesses every aspect of Lincoln’s fiery trial as Commander-in-Chief, soothes his friend's tormented soul, and saves him from repeated attempts on his life. Lamon is away on a mission when Lincoln is killed, yet it is Lamon who redefines that tragic event in a surprising and uplifting way. Saving Lincoln is a visually unique film, set within actual photographs of the American Civil War.
