Join the Central Ohio Civil War Round Table for a presentation by Martin Stewart on his book Redemption: The 71st Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War. Martin Stewart was born and raised in Miami County, Ohio. He spent four years in the U.S. Navy (on board the submarine San Diego) and then returned home. By trade, Martin is a mechanical engineer, and for the past 33 years he has been working with EES Facility Services in Dayton where he is currently Vice President. Mr. Stewart is a direct descendant of four Union soldiers. He is the author of the recently published book Redemption: The 71st Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War (2010), the first printing of which has nearly sold out. Martin’s presentation will give more details about the history of the 71st OVI and the events that brought this regiment from a demeanor of shame to one of prestige.
