This 8-foot-tall obelisk commemorates 15 Confederate prisoners of war who died in Kansas City, Mo. Originally buried in the city cemetery, their remains were subsequently interred in Union Cemetery, although the exact location of their individual graves are not known. Two bronze tablets fastened to the monument list the names of the prisoners, who were taken during the Battle of Westport, the turning point in the Missouri Campaign of Confederate Major General Sterling Price.
