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 wife and I were married in the gazebo there. This little cemetery has a special place in my heart. Every time I go to Fayetteville I visit this cemetery. It's a nice peaceful place.

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 the Cemetery and say a prayer for the people who were laid to rest and give them their thanks for fighting for their country. During the evening visit, the Cemetery has an odd feel to it. I was lucky enough to catch a lot of orbs with my camera, for which I told those in the Cemetery, thank you for showing themselves in the way of orbs. Perhaps you too may catch something with your camera. During the day, there is a quiet and peaceful feeling in the Cemetery. I would recommend both a day, and an evening, visit to this Cemetery.
