Biographical or historical data
The Indiana Commandery of the Loyal Legion was established as a chapter of the Military Order of Loyal Legion of the United States,(MOLLUS) or Loyal Legion, a Civil War veterans' organization where its members were veterans or those who were related to them. By the late 1920's membership had declined considerably, as most Civil War veterans had passed away. Notable members included Eli Lilly, Josiah Kirby Lilly (Sr. and Jr.), Ulysses S. Grant (Sr., Jr., and III), and Albert P. Smith.Source: collection inventory.
