Steven Spielberg will add yet another trophy to his overflowing mantle on March 19.
The Oscar-winning director will receive the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation’s Lincoln Leadership Prize during an awards ceremony at the Hilton Chicago. 
He will accept his prize from Sally Field, one of the stars of his 12-time Academy Award nominated 2012 film, Lincoln.

The annual award honors “outstanding individuals for a lifetime of service in the spirit of 16th President Abraham Lincoln. It is intended to honor individuals who manifest great strength of character, individual conscience, and an unwavering commitment to the defining principles of democracy.”

“This is an extraordinary honor,” the director said in a statement. “For me, Lincoln’s unprecedented commitment to the cause of democracy is one of the most important examples of leadership our nation has ever seen. I am humbled to receive an award that embodies both his legacy and the profound contributions he made to this country.”
