This memorial was placed by the citizens of Lawrence on the 30th of May 1886. Originally, most of the victims were buried in the Pioneer Cemetery, which is on the West Campus of Kansas University just over the bridge from the dorms on the hill. Most of the victims were reinterred in sections one and two of this cemetery. This monument is just to the south of the large hill in the middle of the cemetery.
