Disney will give "Lincoln" DVD to every middle, high school in U.S.
An arm of Disney will provide a free copy of Steven Spielberg's Academy Award-nominated "Lincoln" to every middle and high school in the country when the film comes out on DVD, the entertainment giant announced Tuesday.
Disney Educational Productions said the gift to the nation's schools is in conjunction with the launching of a "social action campaign" they are calling "Stand Tall: Live Like Lincoln."
Along with the movie itself, Disney Educational will provide a teaching guide.
In a statement, Spielberg said he received letters from teachers asking if they could use the film in classrooms. The movie, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, chronicles Lincoln's difficult final months in office and the final days of the Civil War.
