The book Never For Want of Powder: The Confederate Powder Works in Augusta, Georgia, co-written by Dr. Charles Ross, Dean of the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences, was recently selected for the Lilla M. Hawes Award, presented by the Georgia Historical Society (GHS) for the best book on Georgia history published the previous year. Dr. Ross contributed four of the 10 chapters in the coffee-table book, which has been nominated for the prestigious Lincoln Prize for the best non-fiction historical work of the year on the Civil War. The Hawes Award, established in 1993 and carrying a cash prize of $500, honors the GHS director from 1948 to 1976. It will be presented formally at the GHS’s annual meeting Feb. 16 in Savannah.
