It appears that there is a historical error in the Oscar nominated, Steven Spielberg movie Lincoln, which has made one American Congressman very unhappy indeed. Democrat Joe Courtney has revealed his frustration with over the error with Steven Spielberg, asking him to change the mistake before Lincoln gets released on DVD.

The open letter reads:
 
“After finally sitting down to watch your Academy Award-nominated film, Lincoln, I can say unequivocally that the rave reviews are justified: Daniel Day-Lewis is tremendous, the story is compelling and consuming, and the cinematography is beautiful.The historical accuracy of the film's moving conclusion, however? Well, that is a different story.

“As a Member of Congress from Connecticut, I was on the edge of my seat during the roll call vote on the ratification of the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery. But when two of three members of the Nutmeg State's House delegation voted to uphold slavery, I could not believe my own eyes and ears. How could Congressmen from Connecticut - a state that supported President Lincoln and lost thousands of her sons fighting against slavery on the Union side of the Civil War - have been on the wrong side of history?
 
“I understand that artistic license will be taken and that some facts may be blurred to make a story more compelling on the big screen, but placing the State of Connecticut on the wrong side of the historic and divisive fight over slavery is a distortion of easily verifiable facts and an inaccuracy that should be acknowledged, and if possible, corrected before Lincoln is released on Dvd.”
 
It is not yet known when the official DVD release date for Lincoln will be but it will be interesting to see whether he takes these points on board and addresses the matter before the DVD release. Lincoln has been nominated for 12 Academy Awards at this year’s Oscars and are expected to be on of this year’s big winners.
