This Obelisk is in the Confederate Navy section of the Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston, South Carolina.

There are names of 26 men of the Confederate Navy who died in the 
defense of Charleston, SC, and Savannah Georgia. 

From the Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1922.
On December 10, 1922, the Ladies Memorial Association of Charleston, S.C., unveiled with appropriate exercise a granite monument to the memory of thirty six men of the Confederate Navy who lie buried in the Cemetery of the Charleston Port Society on the Ashley River, Charleston. 
These graves have individual headstones, but this Memorial more 
fittingly marks the resting place of these brave men who gave their 
lives for the Confederacy. The names of ten of them were unknown, so could not be inscribed on the Monument. 

These men were recently removed from the Seamens Cemetery which was under the Citadel Stadium in Charleston and re-interred into Magnolia in November 1999 in the largest Confederate Funeral there since 1888.

Crewmembers of the Confederate Submarine Torpedo Boat H. L. Hunley moved from the Citadel
The last crewmember of the Submarine Torpedo Boat H.L.HUNLEY  found at Citadel Stadium on 5 Jan 2000
