Steven Spielberg's film "Lincoln" has been praised for historical accuracy, but there's only so much history a feature film can capture. Callie Crossley filled in some of the biographical blanks with writer Chris Klein, and spoke about Abraham Lincoln's trip to Boston when he was a young Congressman. A trip that some say influenced his views on abolition.
