This week marks two important anniversaries in our nation's history:  the start of the American Civil War on April 12, 1861 -- and the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln four years later on April 16, 1865.  The Civil War has been the subject of many Hollywood dramas over the years.  Most recently, the critically-acclaimed 2013 film Lincoln provided a potent reminder of the heavy personal toll the Civil War took on our country's 16th President as he attempted to heal a nation in crisis, and featured a riveting performance by Daniel Day Lewis.
