I haven't seen Lincoln, but the previews reminded me of how light Daniel Day-Lewis's voice is. I don't know what the real Lincoln sounded like, but methinks a movie Lincoln should have a deep and resonant voice.
The previews also showed the end of the Gettysburg Address, which Day-Lewis read the way everybody does: "...OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people..." When I was a child, I read a piece in Reader's Digest that was an interview with a very old man who'd actually been in Gettysburg at the time. He said that the way Lincoln said it was "...of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE, for the PEOPLE..." I've never heard anyone read it that way.
