Rein wins 2020 A.M. Pate Award

The Fort Worth CWRT announced today that they will be presenting the 2020 A. M. Pate, Jr. Award in Civil War History later this month to historian Christopher M. Rein for his book The Second Colorado Cavalry: A Civil War Regiment on the Great Plains, which was published early last year by University of Oklahoma Press. Because the Pate Award is the only book prize that specifically targets the best Trans-Mississippi Civil War scholarship, which also happens to be my primary area of interest, spreading the word is a distinct pleasure. Congratulations to Dr. Rein for this honor and recognition of his work. It is much deserved.

The announcement also fills in the last remaining gap in the site's select book award compilation list for the year 2020 (see here).
