Louisianian Buried in Kentucky

Found an account of Private John A. Kile of Company C, 18th Louisiana. Kile was wounded at Shiloh, captured and north to Louisville Prison. Kile never made it to Louisville Prison. Instead, he died on the trip and his body was dropped off at Owensboro. An account of his burial was found at The Lost Cause: Journal of the Kentucky Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans. Please click on the link to read the nice write up about Kile.
