2019 WAS A GOOD YEAR FOR SAVAS BEATIE AND OUR AUTHORS. ANOTHER AWARD-WINNING TITLE!
Matthew J. Seelinger, Chief Historian for the Army Historical Foundation, just notified us that Savas Beatie produced another 2019 award-winning title:
The Petersburg Regiment in the Civil War: A History of the 12th Virginia Infantry from John Brown’s Hanging to Appomattox, 1859-1865, by John Horn, an attorney and swell guy in the Chicago area.
MR HORN: "My heart is full of gratitude to the Army Historical Foundation for selecting The Petersburg Regiment for this award. May the glory be to God, the soldiers on whose writings the book drew, my publisher Theodore P. Savas and his staff, my mapmaker and reader Hampton Newsome, my friend Ralph Peters who wrote the Foreword, the other readers of the manuscript, my family, my office staff, my teachers and everyone else who contributed to the composition of the book. This is one of the happiest, most humbling moments of my life."
The book award winners receive a plaque honoring the book and a $1,000 cash award.
Congratulations John, and everyone associated with this wonderful regimental history.
