RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

If you want to retrace the steps of President Abraham Lincoln, or at least the steps of Daniel Day-Lewis, who plays Lincoln in the Steven Spielberg movie "Lincoln," you are in luck.

Virginia tourism officials are launching a self-guided trail and interactive site Thursday to help movie and history buffs walk in the footsteps of Day-Lewis as he starred in the much anticipated movie.

The movie was shot entirely in Virginia, mostly in Richmond and Petersburg.

Officials will launch it Thursday morning at 10:00 on portico steps of the Virginia State Capitol.

The movie opens nationwide on Friday, November 16.
