No word as of this writing on the official website, but a NYT brief mentions that the 2008 Lincoln Prize for American History winner(s) are James Oakes for The Radical and the Republican: Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, and the Triumph of Antislavery Politics and Elizabeth Brown Pryor for Reading the Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters. The article notes that each author will receive $20,000 and a bronze bust. [I wonder where the extra $10,000 went... (Douglas Wilson got $50,000 for winning the 2007 award)].
I haven't read either one, though Pryor's book is amoulderin' on the shelf. Every once in awhile, I glance over at it and its girth, thinking to myself I could read three books I would probably enjoy much more in the time it would take me to get through that one.
