Known But To God

Here lies the body of an Unknown Confederate Soldier, shot dead in May 1865, who was returning home after the Civil War. Most likely he was from Kentucky or Virginia.

He was buried where he fell. His is a lone grave at the top of the mountain at the Breaks Interstate Park - encompassing KY & VA.

The soldier was buried by the local men and is honored by a memorial plaque erected by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. There are always flowers or rose bushes blooming at his grave.

There is an interesting story that goes along with his final resting place. If you put your vehicle in neutral on the road near his grave it will be pulled backward UP the mountain. This actually works.

Rest in Peace, Soldier. You Are Not Forgotten.
