A Stone-A Story
Lewis D. Moores was from Monroe Co., Michigan. When he enlisted in Co. A, 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry in spring of 1862 he was 18 years old. He participated is some of the most horrendous fighting of the Civil War at Brawner Farm and Gettysburg. He died on April 14, 1864. At the time his regiment was camped around Culpeper. The fact that he has a marker probably meant he died of disease instead of on the battlefield-- A long way from home.
