What does "Lincoln" mean?

Saw Lincoln last night.

On 2d try. The 1st time theater was sold out.  

So this time I got my tickets in advance. But because I made the "mistake" of showing up 10 mins after "screen time" -- still a good 15 mins before end of the annoying previews -- I had to sit in the first row of an overpacked theater.   Overpacked w/ ordinary people in an ordinary central CT "suburban" (what passes for that in CT) multiplex.

The full house burst into applause at end, and the theater didn't empty until all the credits had run out...

The movie was beautiful & moving.

Learning (the hard way?) that so many other people -- ones with nothing particular in common with me except for belonging to the same vast and vastly diverse society -- also found the movie so beautiful & moving was even more so.
