A recent guest speaker at the Radcliff Rotary Club meeting was Susan Dyer. Breckinridge County currently is under restoration.
Dyer, a former language arts teacher, became fascinated with the Holt house which for many years stood derelict along the Ohio River. She became determined to save this historical gem in the rough and has worked tirelessly; writing grant proposals and fund raising with considerable success. Along the way, she undertook researching Joseph Holt himself, judge advocate general of the U.S. Army during the Civil War and presiding judge at the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators. Dyer’s book, “Lincoln’s Advocate: the life of Judge Joseph Holt” is available in bookstores and on the Internet.
