Savas Beatie LLC is the Recipient of a Prestigious Book Award for 2019
By: Savas Beatie LLC
"I am honored by this recognition and accept the award as an acknowledgement that our book contributes original content and analysis of the post-Gettysburg period, particularly pertaining to Union and Confederate intelligence operations that impacted the outcome," stated Tom Ryan.
Rick Schaus continued, "Tom and I set out with a mission to produce the comprehensive account of a relatively unknown but critical part of the Gettysburg Campaign. With the assistance of the outstanding team at Savas Beatie we believe that we accomplished that mission. The selection of our book as the winner of this prestigious award helps confirm that belief."
"This is a brave award, justly bestowed," explained publisher Theodore P. Savas, "because the scholarship in Lee is Trapped and Must be Taken swims upstream against conventional wisdom about General Meade's real choices and options during the retreat, and demonstrates for all to see how the survival of the Army of Northern Virginia hung from a much thinner thread than previously understood. Tom Ryan and Rick Schaus have produced a lasting piece of scholarship, and all of us at Savas Beatie are thrilled to have published their work."
