It is under the jurisdiction of the National Cemetery Plot in Ft. Scott. The soldier's monument was erected in the spring of 1870 and the bodies of the victims of the attack on the fort and the massacre were reinterred in a common grave. Names of the 88 victims are engraved on the monument. The fence surrounding the plot is made of cannon barrels protruding from the ground. Originally, cannon balls were mounted on each barrel.
