I just saw Lincoln last night, finally, and was so moved. It is a tremendous film and I highly recommend it.
One of the first characters introduced was Rep. James Ashley, who was the floor manager for the 13th Amendment, and who brought it to a vote in the House. He was Toledo's representative, and a great-grandfather to Thomas Ludlow "Lud" Ashley, who was a Toledo Congressman until 1980.
James Ashley is a main character in the film, and it made me feel very proud that he represented Toledo. He is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, and my husband and kids and I want to visit his grave today to pay our respects.
