This unknown soldier, said to be from the 11th Louisiana Regiment of Clay Anderson's Division, was accidentally killed during the Confederate invasion of Kentucky, and was buried where he died. Tales of the soldier's death vary, but he was killed by accidental discharge of his musket. In actuality, the 11th Louisiana was never in that area, but Gen. James P. Anderson's Division did contain the 13th, 16th, 20th, and 25th Louisiana Regiments in that area. The grave was preserved over the years, and a stone monument was erected in 1934. The grave is located off US Hwy. 31W, close to the Horse Cave exit on I-65.
