I learned last week that my recent book, The Iron Way: Railroads, the Civil War, and the Making of Modern America, was named as a 2012 Lincoln Prize Finalist. Congratulations to the award winners, William C. Harris and Elizabeth Leonard, and to the other Finalists: Amanda Foreman, Barbara Gannon, William A. Dobak. The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History has generously recognized Civil War scholarship through the Lincoln Prize, and I am looking forward to the award dinner in New York City on April 11, 2012.
