“along the gentle slope of the Ozarks ridge”
Situated along the gentle slope of an Ozarks ridge, Confederate Cemetery occupies a beautiful setting overlooking the historic Northwest Arkansas city of Fayetteville. The cemetery contains the remains of men who fell in the service of the Confederacy in Northwest Arkansas, primarily in Benton and Washington Counties. Some of the soldiers buried here died from illness in disease- ridden camps, while others fell in battle on one of the most violent and desperately contested fronts of the Civil War.
Very cool cemetery. And, like most are saying, check out the family cemetery that is just behind it. It's cooler and creepier because many trees that have been uprooted have disturbed some of the graves. No joke! Worth a visit!
This was a really neat stop in Fayetteville. We pulled up and there were deer walking around everywhere. The Cemetary was well kept. We also walked around a very old family cemetary that was across the parking area. It was very old and unkept but it was so fun to walk around and try to read the stones.
