A two-volume biography that was 30 years in the making has won the 2010 Lincoln Prize.
Michael Burlingame, one of the foremost living authorities on Abraham Lincoln, was awarded the prize for his book, Abraham Lincoln: A Life. Burlingame is the Chancellor Naomi B. Lynn Distinguished Chair of Lincoln Studies at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
The prize, sponsored by Gettysburg College and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, will be awarded April 27 at the Union League in New York.
The book is a comprehensive look at Lincoln's life, from growing up impoverished in rural Kentucky and Indiana to building a career as an ambitious politician that led him to become the 16th president of the United States. Nothing is off limits for Burlingame, from private sor¬rows to public disasters, as he tells the whole story of one of America's greatest presidents.
