About Lewis R. Sloan: At the Confederate Memorial Graveyard in Winchester, Virginia Lewis's name is not listed there, but by history, he was supposed to have been killed there on September 19 ,1864. This was called the Third Battle of Winchester. There is a mound of unknown dead (625 soldiers) in the cemetery there with a nice Confederate Memorial standing above it. It is said to have been the first monument ever erected to the unknown dead in U.S. history. Lewis's brother, A.B. Sloan, was reportedly killed in the same battle on the same day. I can't find out much more than that. Both Lewis and his brother A.B. were members of Company B of the 4th Georgia and were called the LaGrange Light Guards. This is from Troupe County, Georgia.
