  1. Dear CVGA Members,

    I am a student at Western Albemarle High school in Albemarle County and my teacher and I were selected for a National History Day program. We are researching Lt. Bernard C. Harlow from Charlottesville, Virginia, and we are having trouble finding a picture of him. I am wondering if there is anything you guys can look at and possibly help out with his picture. Or maybe even connections to his relatives? Please let me know if you guys could help in any way! We greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you!
    Virginia Peng
