Meanwhile, President Lincoln slips away, riding through the cold on horseback in order to find his wife’s Christmas gifts. He’s on a collision course with a former commander in the Union army now living as a blacksmith. Haunted by the kidnapping of his wife by Confederates, the blacksmith swears to murder any that might cross his path. It’s not lighthearted fare, but it’s a winter’s tale of great merit nonetheless.
