Dyer to speak about Holt at Historical Society meeting
The Historical Society of Harrison County Indiana will have its October quarterly event Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. at the Harrison County Office Building meeting room located at 245 Atwood St. in Corydon. The speaker will be Susan Dyer, who will present a program about Joseph Holt of Breckinridge County, Ky., who served as Abraham Lincoln’s Judge Advocate General.
Dyer has been active for many years in telling the Holt story as well as restoring Holt’s Historic Home in Breckinridge County. She has received numerous awards for her efforts.
“I am looking forward to presenting a talk on Joseph Holt and the story behind the efforts to restore a true piece of Kentucky and national heritage and the Holt Home restoration,” Dyer said. “My heart is in this project, and I have been working for 25 years to see the rewards happening now.”
Dyer will also have copies of her books available: “Lincoln’s Advocate: The Life of Judge Joseph Holt” ($25) and “Joseph Holt Mansion: Saving and Restoring the Home of Lincoln’s Judge Advocate General” (cash or check).
The meeting is open to the public.
