The cemetery itself is pretty interesting. Very little literature available, which is unfortunate. Main issue is parking. No spots- just a driveway and a sign that says no parking on grass.... very confusing.

Enjoyed a picnic in this hillside cemetery with my family. Beautiful, hidden gem. We enjoyed looking at all of the tomb stones and the beautiful old trees were lovely.

This is a nice small cemetery with not a lot to see, but some very interesting history. I went close to sunset and kind of creeped myself with all the different noises!

There are very few cemeteries for confederate soldiers and it was great to find this one. The area was great and the cemetery was well landscaped. The monument in the center was very inspirational...

This cemetery overlooks Fayetteville and is very well laid out. Great tribute to the falling from the Civil War. Worth the time...

Definitely a place to search out. The final resting place for so many young men who went to war for a cause they believed in. Their lives were snuffed out in an instant, giving their "last full measure".

This place has nostalgia for me. My great grandfather fought at Pea Ridge with the 3rd Illinois cavalry. The soldiers buried at this cemetery are all rebs who died in that battle. If you explore a bit you will find other old graves out of the rebel part of it. It is a pretty setting; but somber and haunting. My... More

If you like old markers in old cemeteries, you should definitely stop here. It's a nice quiet place to contemplate and investigate.

Extremely humbling. A place of solitude. All those blank headstones of those who fought and died in the Civil War. Sad to think of the families who never knew what happened to their loved ones, or where there remains were laid to rest. The founders of the Cemetery proved a consecrated burial site for them. Now anyone can go to... More

Very old and wonderful Civil War burial for Confederate soldiers - mostly unknown. Amazing history behind the cemetery. Beautiful trees in October. One section of the stone wall is completely broken down (reminded me of the breach in the walls that Nehemiah wrote about). The historic and small Walker cemetery to the East is a treasure. Beyond the Walker cemetery... More
