This month, the Lead365 team will be talking about examples of leadership in history. Be it actual historical moments, or ones that you’ve seen in movies or TV, we want to share with you the moments on the battlefield, in the courtroom, or in the newspapers, that make us want to be better leaders. Gary’s got another pick for a great historical film: Lincoln.
Lincoln helped create our country and developed the foundations that which today we still use. Though he was assassinated just after the end of a war he steered the country through, he led our country though the end of slavery. Lincoln led the U.S. through the Civil War, a conflict that had one of the deadliest impact in war history. He developed our country constitutionally and also got our economy up and running. This movie is powerful because Lincoln had a great impact on our country and the reason why the U.S. is the way it is today.
