Look back at the president's most memorable moments.
Daniel Day-Lewis fights to pass the 13th Amendment in the new international trailer for Lincoln, released Monday by DreamWorks.

In the trailer, moviegoers get a closer look at Day-Lewis’ portrayal of President Abraham Lincoln as he aims to abolish slavery during the Civil War.

“Slavery, sir, it’s done,” a stern Lincoln says amid protests from civilians and Congress.

The trailer also teases more from performances by Tommy Lee Jones and Sally Field, both of whom generated serious Oscar buzz after the film screened at the New York Film Festival in October.

Lincoln opens in theaters Nov. 9.
