Mashable

A new full-length trailer for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln begins with a montage of moments that have forever changed the United States and other countries, including images of the World Trade Center's tribute lights, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and the raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima.

All the while, Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis narrates and appears as Abraham Lincoln in the "Unite" trailer. Lincoln details his last months in office -- when he attempted to abolish slavery and end the Civil War.
