Eight Confederate soldiers buried at the national cemetery, who died in Keokuk as prisoners of war.

The Unknown Soldiers monument, erected in 1912 by the Women's Corps of Keokuk, honors 48 unknown soldiers buried here. The monument is a large granite obelisk topped with the figure of a Confederate soldier standing at parade rest.
