Newsmax TV has won a prestigious Telly Award for its program "Lincoln at Gettysburg," which began airing last Nov. 19, the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

The program was honored with a Bronze Telly in the Internet/Online Programs (History/Biography) category.

"Lincoln at Gettysburg" is hosted by National Review Online columnist John Fund, who interviewed Harold Holzer, one of the country's leading authorities on Lincoln and the political culture of the Civil War era. He serves as chairman of The Lincoln Bicentennial Foundation and was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President George W. Bush in 2008.

The hour-long program also features comments from well-known figures about the famous address, considered one of the most important speeches in American history, and historical photos.

The Telly Awards, founded in 1978, honors the very best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV programs and commercials.

"Today, the Telly is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders from large international firms to local production companies and ad agencies," Telly Awards states on its website.

Chris Hannan, senior vice president of marketing at Fox Sports Networks, said: "The Telly Award represents the very best in cable and local television. Being recognized by an organization of such high stature within the television and film industry is a great achievement."
