    Review: Ken Burns' 'The Address' shows boys memorizing Lincoln's words
    Ken Burns' new documentary, "The Address," which premieres Tuesday on PBS, is not at all what we have come to think of as a Ken Burns film. There are no celebrity voices reading documents of the dead; no narrator reading the words of Geoffrey C. Ward;...
