Living with Lincoln (2015) directed by Peter Kunhardt and Brian Oakes 
In the years following the Civil War, ancestors of documentary filmmaker Peter Kunhardt collected a treasure trove of photographs, rare books and other artifacts relating to Abraham Lincoln. Over the decades, their descendants carried on the work, helping to preserve an essential part of America’s past. Living with Lincoln explores his family’s physical and emotional connection to the president, revealing a personal side of the immortal leader through a modern-day journey of discovery, obsession, depression and despair. Recently acquired by the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University, their collection consists of 68,000 images, as well as 2,000 other items.
