Continuity mistake: When Lincoln is giving his soliloquy about abolishing slavery, if you look close, Secretary Seward"s elbows are on the table with his hands folded and his chin resting on them. Soon after, When Lincoln says "Blood's been spilt to afford us this moment!" you'll see that Secretary Seward pulls his elbows off the table and onto his lap. The next cut is Lincoln pointing to Seward and the rest of the bunch screaming "Now! Now! Now!" At this time, Seward's hands are back on the table in the exact position they were before.
