The Histopolis Place-of-the-Day for Sunday, November 21, 2010 is the Soldiers' Lot in Woodland Cemetery, Mound City, Mound City Township, Linn County, Kansas.

"The Mound City Soldiers' Lot is located in Lots 262 and 263 of Woodland Cemetery at Mound City, Kansas, which set aside the area for the burial of soldiers. The first interments consisted of 30 Union soldiers killed in the Battles of Mine Creek and Marais des Cygnes in 1864. The deed for the soldiers' lot, measuring 48 by 158 feet, was not officially transferred until 1874. In 1888, the remains of other Union and unknown soldiers buried elsewhere in Linn County were re-interred into the soldiers' lot. In 1940, laborers of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), a depression-era work relief program, erected an enclosing stone wall and post-and-chain fence around the perimeter of the soldiers' lot."
