The Jewish Civil War Memorial (Cincinnati, Ohio) is located in the United Jewish Cemetery located at 3400 Montgomery Road in the Evanston neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. The memorial is an obelisk, which was completed in 1868. It first honored one fallen Jewish Civil War soldier from Cincinnat, Lt. Louis Reitler, who was killed in battle in 1862. His name is inscribed on the east side of the memorial. The graves of five other Union Veterans lie near. The memorial now includes the names of local Jewish soldiers from World War I and World War II.
