David McCullough to Receive 2016 Freedom Award

USCHS 2016 Freedom Award: David McCullough

USCHS 2016 Freedom Award: David McCullough

The USCHS Board of Trustees will present David McCullough with the Freedom Award. Mr. McCullough has been widely acclaimed as a “master of the art of narrative history.” He is twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, twice winner of the National Book Award, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award. His book, 1776, has been acclaimed “a classic,” while John Adams, published in 2001, remains one of the most praised and widely read American biographies of all time.
