He is buried on the top of a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. War Eagle was a believer in peace and working together. You can see three states from the bluffs.

This was a very interesting piece of local history. A quiet peaceful place that doesn't take long to visit not much of a hike but a very nice wide paved sidewalk. The only slightly disappointing part is the 10-foot fall tall chain link fence put...More

Great place to view the scenery, can see 3 states from the bluffs. Below the bluff the Big Sioux River joins up with the Missouri river.

Chief War Eagle is buried here, on high ground in Iowa City, overlooking the confluence of the Sioux and Missouri Rivers. From there you can see both Nebraska and South Dakota. The statue atop the monument is an abstraction, not an actualrepresentation.
