Tracing the historic arc of Abraham Lincoln's life from his picaresque days as a gangly young lawyer in Sangamon County, Illinois, through his improbable marriage to Kentucky belle Mary Todd, to his 1865 visit to war-shattered Richmond only days before his assassination, I AM ABRAHAM hews closely to the familiar Lincoln saga.
