He tells Cora and Lord Grantham that Sybil would have surely died either way, and Cora forgives Robert.

Next week:

 In 1863, Abraham Lincoln proved himself a master of a new frontier, not on the battlefields of the Civil War, but in his high-tech command center: the War Department Telegraph Office. The internet of the 19th century, the telegraph gave Lincoln new powers to reshape leadership and wield personal control across distant battlefields. It also connected him to the country in new ways, as information poured in, and allowed him to feel the pulse of the country faster than before. The results of Lincoln's pioneering experiment in communication led to the rebirth of America on the fields of Gettysburg, both in the battle that turned the tide of the Civil War and in the few words that recast the American ideal as a national creed: the Gettysburg Address.  Join witf TV for Lincoln@Gettysburg Tuesday November 19 at 9:00pm on witf
