Dear Lincoln Savers,

Director Sal Litvak here. I'm excited to share that the Gettysburg Address from Saving Lincoln will be prominently featured in the next edition of Houghton Mifflin's standard American History textbook in schools across our great nation! Images will appear in the book itself, and the full clip will appear in the book's digital component.

Meanwhile, the movie has continued to build a wide following through word-of-mouth and recently became a hot title on Amazon Prime

Thanks again for supporting Saving Lincoln when we needed you!

Your pal,
Sal

 

 

Big News! Sal's Gettysburg Piece Accompanies Those Of Five U.S. Presidents In New Book!

8 likes

My Pals,

The biggest honor of my life was the successful funding of our film, Saving Lincoln, by you and 808 other backers who believed in our vision. 

The second biggest honor:  my 272-word response to the Gettysburg Address has been included alongside those of the five living US presidents in the new book, Gettysburg Replies.

This amazing book offers 100 handwritten essays by prominent thinkers - all limited to the same 272-word count of Lincoln's masterpiece, and inspired by his timeless message. 

Other contributors include Congressional Medal of Honor and Nobel Prize winners, as well as Alan Dershowitz, Steven Spielberg, Colin Powell, Sandra Day O'Connor, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Lech Walesa, Annie Liebovitz, Ken Burns, Pete Seeger, Harold Holzer, and many others. 

All proceeds of the book benefit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library & Museum in Springfield.

I was touched and entertained by the other contributors' essays, and I am drawn closer to Abraham Lincoln through them. I highly recommend this book - there's nothing out there like it!

Good News & Thank You!

My Pals,

Thanks to you, Saving Lincoln has launched! We are receiving wonderful feedback from around the country, and we have been included in the new Lincoln Exhibition at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum (see photos below). Not so many independent films have artifacts on display in a national museum, and we are absolutely thrilled.

I am also happy to report we have shipped all Kickstarter rewards!

It has been an honor to lead this campaign, and I am profoundly grateful to you for believing in Saving Lincoln, and in me.

If you have 60 seconds, and you enjoyed the film, please post a review on our Amazon page. Word-of-mouth is our lifeblood, and I truly appreciate every word you share about Saving Lincoln.

If you have not received your reward, you probably did not submit a fulfillment survey (which gives us your address). You can do so now by making sure you're logged into the Kickstarter account you used to back Saving Lincoln, jumping over to our page, and clicking on the blue "Respond now" button at the top.

Once again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I wish you a wonderful summer!

Your pal,
Sal
