2019 Pate Award winner announced

The Fort Worth Civil War Round Table just announced that the winner of their 2019 A.M. Pate, Jr. Award in Civil War History is Kenneth Lyftogt for his book Iowa in the Civil War; Volume 1: Free Child of the Missouri Compromise 1850-1862. This is the only book award devoted exclusively to Civil War topics directly tied to the Trans-Mississippi region. In making their decision, the committee considered nine nominated candidates for the honor, and, according to them, this was the "clear winner." Published by Camp Pope Publishing, it is the first of a planned trilogy. In addition to reading my review at the link above, you might also be interested in my 2018 interview with the author (to check it out, go here). Congratulations to all involved.
