This email of January 13, 2016 was sent from David Preston, author Braddocks Defeat: The Battle of the Monongahela and the Road to Revolution  to the Foundation’s Board members Norman Baker, Dr Carl Ekberg and Steve Resan :

.

“This is a long overdue note of my deepest thanks for the great honor you saw fit to bestow upon my book Braddock’s Defeat, the 2015 Judge Robert Woltz History Award of the French and Indian War Foundation.  The lovely gorget hangs in a place of honor in my office.  Receiving such an unexpected award–especially from my friend and colleague Norman–is a memory that I will long cherish.  I greatly appreciate the work that the French and Indian War Foundation has done, and it goes without saying that I am always at your service.  I hope that my book will bring added attention to the sites and the history that you are preserving and interpreting.”
