Congratulations to Brian Dirck! His book, Lincoln the Lawyer, has received the Benjamin Barondess Award from the Civil War Round Table of New York.
Past winners include historians Garry Wills and Doris Kearns Goodwin.
I have read Dirck's award-winning book and enjoyed it very much. If you are interested in Lincoln's law career, specifically its connection to his political career, give it a look.
