Historic Indian Creek Distillery was the perfect place to stop in on this cold Sunday afternoon to visit with Martin Stewart, local Civil War historian. Mr. Stewart shared about the 71st Ohio Volunteer Infantry and the men who served in the company. About 50 people were in attendance for the event sponsored by the Elizabeth Township Historical Society. After the program, folks enjoyed a warm bowl of chili and cornbread.
Lt. Col. Kyle had been a businessman and school board member in Troy before serving in the Civil War. He died in the Battle of Shiloh in April of 1962. Kyle School in Troy was named in his honor. He is buried in Rosehill Cemetery in Troy.
