Especially let us know what you think of the Brit actor Daniel Day-Lewis’s voice. Critics over here have panned him already - too high-pitched and whiny, they say, for the great man.

#2. That was an effort to be historically accurate. That was the view of Doris Kerns G. He can obviously produce a deeper voice if so asked to do. She said that AL had this tembre/pitch.

According to what I’ve learned, President Lincoln did have a high-pitched…..and no doubt whiny voice…..and I assume, rather nasal-sounding. But, we’ll never really know for certain, will we?

There was, I have read, a Presbyterian minister with Lincoln when he was pronounced dead. The man offered a prayer before the secretary said the famous line, “Now he belongs to the ages.” That wasn’t shown in the film. Am impressive experience nonetheless.

#6 One of the most interesting studies of historiography was in the New Yorker, by Adam Gopnick, dealing with Lincoln. He argued that Stanton more likely said, “Now he belongs to the Angels.” The study analyzes how histories of Lincoln emerged and took form. (Lincoln and Stanton attended tragedies of Shakespeare for entertainment; the line influencing the memorial, Gopnick argues, was ‘better angels of our nature’; this can be found in some of the earliest histories).
