Fremont Ross High School Veterans Projects (Fremont, Ohio)


Project Description
Scope and Content

This collection was donated to the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in 2009 by Mike Gilbert, history teacher at Fremont Ross High School in Fremont, Ohio.

Project Description
These projects were completed by 10th-grade students in Mike Gilbert’s Honors 20th Century Global Studies classes at Fremont Ross High School.  Each year Mr. Gilbert assigns a project to the students where they are told to interview and/or research veterans and report on their time in the service.  Sixty-one interviews conducted by students in 2009 have been digitized and posted online at:


Scope and Content
The veterans featured in this project served in the armed forces as early as the Civil War to the present day.  The projects include factual data and memories from each veteran, as well as “editorials” by the students and essays describing how soldiers’ sacrifices have impacted their lives.  The project has evolved over the years; the more recent projects contain more data than the earlier ones.

This collection contains the projects of thirty students dating from 2009.  There is a folder for each student’s project.  Projects are on floppy disks, CDs, or flash drives.  Accompanying most of the digital records are printed copies of several pages from the students’ project.  The folders are organized alphabetically by the students’ last names.
