On Friday, December 1, Daniel W. Crofts came to Charlottesville to receive officially the 2017 Bobbie and John Nau Book Prize in American Civil War Era History for his book Lincoln and the Politics of Slavery: The Other Thirteenth Amendment and the Struggle to Save the Union (University of North Carolina Press, 2016).

Crofts also very generously shared a work in progress with our graduate students and staff at a workshop luncheon the same day.
