The National Cemetery in Keokuk (established in 1862 but pictured here in about 1940) is Iowa’s only National Cemetery. It is an important part of Keokuk’s Civil War legacy. For the impact of Keokuk’s Civil War legacy on the ways it commemorated the Civil War—and for the ways its commemorations contrasted with those in Sioux City—see Tony Klein’s article in this issue.
