Sloan, Lewis R. Private October 22, 1862. Killed at Winchester, Va. September 19, 1864.

Military: C.S.A. 4th GA Inf. Co. B. Died along with his brother A.B. Sloan at Third Battle of Winchester VA.

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.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Stonewall Confederate Cemetery is the last resting place for over 3000 Confederate soldiers who died in the fields and hospitals around Winchester, Virginia. Dedicated in 1866, it is part of the Mount Hebron cemetery complex and is the final resting place for such famous soldiers as General Turner Ashby (and his brother) and General Robert Johnson. Separated into smaller sections, one for each State, the cemetery is home to many proud monuments in addition to the remains of over 400 unknown Confederate Soldiers.

Confederate Unknowns Memorial
In 1879, the Ladies Confederate Memorial Association erected the monument to honor the 829 Confederate soldiers buried as unknowns in Stonewall Cemetery Winchester, Virginia.
