* AllStarCast: Though more of the HeyItsThatGuy character actor variety than the A-list star variety, although Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt definitely all qualify.

* HeyItsThatGuy: As noted above there's too many to list, though the brief appearance of [[TheForceAwakens Kylo Ren]] apparently living another life as a Union telegraph operator, who talked with Lincoln, (and also wore all-over black clothing), stands out.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Fans of ''Series/TheWire'' will recognize Davide Costabile (Thomas Klebanow), Boris [=McGiver=] (Lieutenant Marimow), and Bill Raymond (The Greek) as James Ashley, Alexander Coffroth and Schuyler Colfax, respectively.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Lincoln and Mary Todd go to the opera to see Gounod's Faust, the same opera featured at the start of ''Literature/TheAgeOfInnocence'' (which also starred Daniel Day-Lewis) set 10 years later in the 1870s.

* FakeBrit: Lee Pace as Fernando Wood (the real Wood was completely American.)
** He sounds that way because he is using elocution, the art of formal speech. Wood may have learned this "classical" sound in school, or picked it up by listening to actors (perhaps the extremely popular Booths) and others trained in public speaking. Bill Raymond as Schuyler Colfax, saying "The House recognizes Fernando Wood," is also using it. Some film actors still practiced elocution in the 1960s.
