Union, Confederacy Make Peace at CCS

Imagine Civil War Gens. Ulysses S. Grant and A.P Hill standing next to each other and holding a cordial conversation.

That was just one of several significant moments at this year’s history fair in Culpeper Christian School’s multipurpose room Thursday.

Sporting makeshift gray beards, 13-year-old eighth-graders Preston Boxley portrayed the fearless Union leader, while Chance Marshall personified the brave Confederate who grew up on Main and Davis streets.

“History is alive here in Culpeper,” said Brad Hales, CCS history teacher and pastor at Reformation Lutheran Church.
