Lincoln Prize Awarded

The Fall/Winter publishing season was brought a deluge of Lincoln books, in anticipation of the 200th anniversary of his birth, no doubt the reason that Gettysburg College chose to award the 2009 Lincoln prize to two authors.

The winners are announced in the New York Times. A list of past prize winners is available on the Gettysburg College site.
