Soldiers Grave in Clark County

I am trying to learn more about a soldier whose grave sits alone high up on the continental divide near Humphrey, Idaho. A sign along side the road reads "Soldiers Grave". The soldier's name is Samuel A. Glass. An official military tombstone marks the grave and says that he was a soldier in company L of the second cavalry and died Aug. 24 1877. My research has determined that he was wounded on 20 aug 1877 during the nearby battle of Camas Meadow, and that he died at pleasant valley while being evacuated to Virginia City, Montana. His grave site overlooks the Pleasant Valley area alongside Interstate 15 about 10 miles south of the Idaho border. The gravesite seems to be taken care of, thus there should be someone with knowledge or information about both the gravesite and Mr. Glass. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
