Neat little cemetery. I was the only person there during the day. Great view of Fayetteville from up on the hill! A bit of a a creepy feeling there as the trees whistle in the wind. I felt as if the upkeep is in need...More

We had visited Pea Ridge earlier in the day and knew a little bit of history from the battles there. It is in the middle of town, but a neat piece of history.

A very touching tribute to the Confederate War dead apart from the noise of the town. This place is well worth the visit. It tells the story of loss and sacrifice that a thousand in-your-face statues set up in a thousand public places fail to...More

I am glad that this cemetery has respectfully maintained our American history. It is a slippery slope to remove Confederate statues and history. It is part of our history and important to remember. Not black or white but American History with all of its warts.

As cemeteries go it won't take you long but as the reason you built one it is humbling and uplifting the love of the ladies who wanted to bring their men home and raised the money to do it. Beautifully done and peaceful.

This place is not politically correct. It is real history, both U.S. and Confederate. One of the oldest cemetery in Arkansas.
