This cemetery is in disrepair and is in dire need of restoration and attention. There are a number of very interesting epitaphs and worth going to see.

How sad to be buried in a grave beneath a stone with no name. It would have been sadder to let these men lie in the fields and ditches where they died.

The Confederate Cemetery is located not far from B71. It is very peaceful but you can hear the faint sound of the traffic in the distance. Depending on where you are standing, you would think you are out in the country, but then you move just a bit and you can see the buildings of downtown Fayetteville through the trees.... More

Took a self guided tour of the Confederate Cemetary. Very interesting and well kept area. A nice piece of hidden history in the middle of Fayetteville.

My wife thought it was nice and peaceful but found the abandoned graves on the outskirts of the cemetery sad. The area is still and lends itself to reflection. The deserted areas are overgrown and in some areas the headstones are hidden in weeds. To me, this also provides for humble reflection.

Peaceful and serene, quite and peaceful and within walking distance of downtown Fayetteville. A knowledge of history will add greatly to understanding and appreciating the experience.
