Petitioning Stephen Spielberg

Tell the truth about Connecticut's vote.


Movies are a powerful source of knowledge - especially when they claim, as "Lincoln" does, to be based on history. Spielberg deliberately misrepresented history by having Connecticut's two senators vote against the 13th Amendment even though one of them, Lyman Trumbull, was co-author of the amendment. Now Spielberg plans to distribute "Lincoln" to schools. He cannot claim it is only entertainment. Whom will schoolchildren believe, their textbooks or the movie?
Protect history and stop the lies. Please sign this petition.
