      W.W. Webster of Muscatine Iowa was selected to construct the monument that was finished in October of 1874. On the monument is inscribed , on it's four sides, 200 names of soldiers in Henderson County who fell in the field or died in the service of their country. The monument was erected by the private liberality of the people; subscriptions varied from $5 to $50. The cost was $3,300. The location is in the center of a beautiful enclosed park, planted to deciduous and evergreen trees, comprised in lots 1, 4, and 5, block 4 Swartz' addition, donated by John McKinney Sr., for many years a resident and business man of Oquawka. this handsome work is not more a monument to the glorious dead of Henderson County than to the affection, gratitude, generosity and patriotism of the happy and intelligent living.
