Great War Series: Preston Lewis Introduces Audience to Great War Hero Daniel R. Edwards

February 15, 2018

In the first event in the Great War Centennial Commemoration Lecture Series of the spring 2018 semester, Preston Lewis, an author for former director of the Angelo State University Office of Communications and Marketing, introduced the audience to the story of Daniel R. Edwards, a recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor. Lewis told more than just Edwards’s biography, however. He also discussed the difficulties of telling truth from fiction in writing about an individual who claims to have accomplished tasks that were impossible. The audience of nearly 170 learned a great deal about Mr. Edwards’s service but also about the job that an historian performs in studying the past.
