Civil War discussion group slates meeting



The second meeting of the newly formed Civil War Round Table will be conducted at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Jackson County Public Library in Seymour, 303 W. Second St.

Local attorney Stephen Pierson will speak about Robert Houston Milroy, a two-star general, born 5 miles east of Salem in Canton.

Pierson, who is organizing the Civil War Round Table, said Milroy’s family later moved to Delphi, but some members of the Milroy family still live in Seymour. The town of Milroy in Rush County was named after Milroy’s father, Samuel Milroy.
