Never trust a future President!

Twelve-year-old Max Mooney is a sculpture’s apprentice in the 1860’s. His boss is working on a statue of Abraham Lincoln. When Max breaks one of the hands, he hides his mistake and decides to replace it before anyone notices. All he has to do is find Mr. Lincoln and re-cast his hand. Unfortunately, Max finds Mr. Lincoln on the day he’s been elected to run for President. Half the city is at his house celebrating. The only way Max can privately talk to Lincoln is with the help of his young sons, Willie & Tad, but they may be harder to trust than a future President!
