Award description

Awarded by the Civil War Round Table of New York

At a meeting of the Board of the Directors held on June 19, 1956, James D. Horan proposed that a Fletcher Pratt Award be established as a memorial to a distinguished charter member and former president (1953-54), who had passed away nine days earlier. Unanimously approved as proposed, the award, in the form of an appropriate plaque, is presented to the author or editor of the best non-fiction book on the Civil War published during the course of the calendar year. The Fletcher Pratt Award is presented annually at the May meeting. N.B. - Year dates are the year of publication.
