The Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize at the Gettysburg College invites submissions for the 2019 Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize. Titles published in 2018, will be eligible. The $50,000 prize will generally go to a book but in rare instances an important article or essay might be honored. When studies competing for the Prize show similar scholarly merit, preference will be given to work on Abraham Lincoln, or the Civil War soldier, or work aimed at the literate general public. In harmony with the last preference, in rare instances the Prize may go to a work or works of fiction, poetry, the theatre, the arts, a film, scholarly article or editing project, provided they are true to history. In rare instances, the Prize may go to a historical project, such as an inspired conference or an editing project, such as an inspired conference or an editing project. In rare instances, the trustees may grant the award to a work or service related to Lincoln, or the Civil War soldier or their era, not included in the foregoing description.  As many as two prizes may be awarded each year. It will be awarded for works published only during the designated year of the Prize.
