Dr. Stephen Engle was honored recently at the 55th Annual Barondess/Lincoln Award ceremony in Manhattan for his recent publication,  Gathering to Save a Nation: Lincoln & the Union’s War Governors . Engle’s work examines nation-state politics during the Civil War and argues that during a period of immense conflict, the Union and the federal system prevailed because the alliance between Lincoln and his loyal governors reinforced the cooperative nature of our political culture. Past recipients of this award include Doris Kearns Goodwin, David Donald, Harold Holzer, William Saphire, Tony Kushner, and Eric Foner.
