Search Granville Allen Memorial:

The Granville Allen Memorial was erected by fellow 17th Kentucky Regiment members of Granville Allen in 1894. This memorial was cut into the face of a rock wall that was located on the side of the "Old Logansport Road". This location is just yards away from where Granville Allen was killed during the "Skirmish at Big Hill", just outside Morgantown, Kentucky. The monument was intentionally selected on the roadside to assure that anyone riding back and forth from Logansport to Morgantown would surely never forget what took place at "Big Hill". Granville Allen is thought to be the first Kentucky soldier to be killed in action on his native soil, October 27, 1861.
