Holton Wins Bancroft for "Abigail Adams"

We're thrilled and excited here at MHS today to report that our friend Woody Holton has been awarded one of the three 2010 Bancroft Prizes for his book Abigail Adams. One of the most prestigious prizes for books of history, the Bancroft is awarded by the trustees of Columbia University "to the authors of books of exceptional merit in the fields of American history, biography, and diplomacy."

Congratulations, Woody, on this well-deserved honor!
