July 2, 2011
Lou Harry
If you asked me a week ago what I knew about Indiana’s direct involvement in the Civil War, you would have been met with a blank stare.

Even if most of them aren’t showing off any talent beyond waving from a car on the parade route, there’s no denying that celebrities visiting Indy for the 500 add a kick to the month of May. Of course, one person’s celebrity is another’s “Who’s that?”
