    Researchers Nanette Napoleon, right, and Anita Manning stand near the spot in Oahu Cemetery where Pvt. J.R. Kealoha, a Native Hawaiian soldier who fought for the Union in the Civil War, is buried. Manning and Napoleon are part of a group that wants the Department of Veterans Affairs to grant a marker for Kealoha, whose gravesite is the only one of about 48 Native Hawaiian Civil War veterans that is known. Inset, markers of other Civil War veterans at the cemetery are distinguished by a shield-shaped engraving.
