Another monument in Fairview Cemetery, Council Bluffs, IA is the Kinsman Monument, a Civil War memorial in honor of Colonel William Kinsman who was the commanding officer of the 23rd Iowa Volunteer infantry regiment. More information about it's history can be found HERE.
I have lived in this area most of my life and was not aware of this until just a few years ago. The monument is surrounded by actual Civil War canons. Many other Civil War veterans are also buried around this monument.
The cemetery itself is one of the oldest in Council Bluffs and full of history.
