History Channel on Lincoln's depression

The History Channel is going to put on a show about the personal demons faced by Abraham Lincoln. The show airs on Monday, January 16, 2006, at 7:00 p.m. Central (8:00 elsewhere):

LINCOLN delves into personal diaries and family histories, and consults with the foremost Lincoln biographers in the world to draw a complete personal portrait of the sixteenth President, asserting that the amazing strength that enabled his greatest accomplishments was a result of decades spent battling and overcoming his own personal demons.

In addition to some fascinating and informative links on that page, there's also a link to the "Lincoln Slots" game for a chance to win prizes.

UPDATE on January 16, 2005: See my blog post while watching the show: Lincoln's dirty laundry
