Johnson’s Island Confederate Prison Cemetery

Statue in the cemetery

Maintained by the U.S. Government, Department of the Interior, the Johnson’s Island Confederate Cemetery is the final resting place for 206 Confederate officers. These men died in captivity during the period when the island was used as a prisoner of war facility, 1862-1865. A statue of a Confederate soldier facing south by sculptor Moses Ezekiel was erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy Cincinnati Chapter in 1910. Open daily year-round; free admission to cemetery but access to the island is via causeway and a nominal toll per vehicle is charged.
