Ken Burns

Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, documentarian Ken Burns stops by to chat about his career as a filmmaker, which includes the Emmy-winning Baseball (1994) -- plus the supplement Tenth Inning (2010). His newest work The Address focuses on Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and airs April 15.

Burns, @KenBurns, encourages everyone to "Learn The Address" and several of ESPN's on-air talent obliged with their own version.

Burns, who has plans for a film on Jackie Robinson to air in 2015, is a two-time Academy Award nominee and seven-time Emmy Award winner, has produced and directed more than 20 films during his career, including Brooklyn Bridge (1981), The Statue of Liberty (1985), The Civil War (1990) and The National Parks: America's Best Idea (2009).

Send your questions now and join Burns Thursday at 1:45 p.m. ET!
