William M.E. Rachal Award
I just found out that my article, “William Mahone, the Lost Cause, and Civil War History” has been awarded the Virginia Historical Society’s 2005 William M.E. Rachal Award for best overall article in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography (Vol. 113, No. 4). As you might imagine I am absolutely thrilled about this award, and given the quality of essays in this journal I am also pleasantly surprised.
