Congratulations to Zack Fry (Ph.D., History, 2017) who has won the Society for Military History's Edward M. Coffman First Manuscript Prize for his dissertation on the political culture of the Civil War Army of the Potomac.
"The Society for Military History First-Manuscript Prize is awarded annually to an author who has not previously published a scholarly book-length manuscript. The competition is open to scholars whose work blends military history with social, political, economic, and diplomatic history and to authors of studies centering on campaigns, leaders, technology, and doctrine. The winning author receives a cash award, a plaque, and, after successful editorial review, a publication contract with the University of North Carolina Press."
