The Civil War Comes To Lakeside

By Linda Huber, LHS Board Member

To kick off the Civil War week of events, the Lakeside Heritage Society Sunday Lecture Series presents “William D. Gill, Ottawa County Civil War Soldier”. Gill was one of 178 Civil War soldiers serving in Company I of the 41st Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry. The initial Company I was recruited from Ottawa County by John Mitchell. The men were mustered in September 16, 1861 at Camp Wood in Cleveland. They received their guns and training at Camp Dennison east of Cincinnati. After spending a difficult winter near New Haven, KY, the 41st left Louisville by steamboat for Nashville.  General Grant called them up to reinforce the troops at Shiloh, TN where they arrived at the end of the first day of battle, April 6, 1862. On the morning of the second day, while attacking across an open field, William D. Gill took a musket ball to the chest. He died at Evansville, IN on April 23. He is buried in Christy Chapel Cemetery in Portage Township adjacent to the Gill Family Homestead.
