Indiana World War Records, Gold Star Honor Roll, 1914-1918
Gold Star Hoosiers of World War I
The Indiana Historical Commission published this honor roll of Indianians who gave their lives in the War to End All Wars.
The record, organized by counties, with thumbnail biographies and photos of the Hoosiers who died in World War I, includes Abraham Lincoln’s Spencer County which lost thirty-eight sons. Private Ernest L. Hile lived in Lincoln City, a crossroads immediately adjacent to the Lincoln Boyhood Home. Hile belonged to Company C, 102nd Regiment, 26th Infantry Division, and died from wounds received at the Battle of Chateau Thierry (p. 589).
