General Lee at Crestview


This past Wednesday, students in Crestview High School’s junior English classes and AP American History classes enjoyed a first-person account of the life of General Robert E. Lee presented by Chuck Eberle of Van Wert.  Eberle is a descendant of Lee’s and has participated in re-enactments and presentations for more than 20 years. The presentation covered Lee’s family, educational, and military background, as well as information about the Civil War. Students and staff enjoyed the presentation, talking with Eberle, and viewing some of the historical memorabilia he has collected over the years. Shown is Eberle, dressed as General Lee, talking with Crestview High School students. (Crestview photo)
