Alex Munro, the executive director of the Thaddeus Stevens Foundation, will receive
the Thaddeus Stevens Award for promoting the memory of the Great Commoner at
the dinner at Lombardo’s Restaurant on April 3. (See other article on annual

the author of the play about Thaddeus Stevens, Brad Hoch, the author of a book
about Stevens’s life in Gettysburg, and Garrett Epps, who wrote about Thaddeus
Stevens’s role in framing the Fourteenth Amendment.
