ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A sneak-preview of a five-part documentary about the Civil War will be on behalf of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.

The screening will show Episode 5 of Civil War: The Untold Story, a documentary series Elizabeth McGovern of Downton Abbey and produced for public television by Great Divide Pictures. The showing will take place March 25 at 7 p.m. at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown. The event is free and open to the public.

Showing will be Episode 5, With Malice Toward None, which will be introduced by filmmaker Chris Wheeler. Against the dramatic backdrop of the Battles for Atlanta, this hour chronicles the presidential election of 1864 - one that Lincoln himself was resigned to defeat.
