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.

It's small, not a lot to look at but it was nice to see at least once. It was a little ere to see alone not going to lie but it was cool to at least see it once in my life.

Word can not describe this place. It is a must see. As a Christian to go to this and reflect on what is going on in our country today is moving. I was speechless when we left and you know it is sacred ground you can feel it when your there.

The very ground is hallowed and sacred. Monuments provide a history lesson. Don't miss one of Arkansas's largest trees marked with a plaque. In fall, the trees are glorious.

A nice well maintained cemetery and monument dedicated to, I am estimating 200 young men who died while serving in the Confederate Army near and in Fayetteville. A good place to reflect on the sacrifice and suffering of these men from Texas, Louisiana, Missouri and Arkansas who died in local battles or hospitals during the Civil War.

Visited this center and wished it was better maintained. They are monuments on the east side of the cemetery that they do not even mow. Very few tombstones have names or dates.

You may well have the place to yourself. Nice to think how peaceful it is considering the horrors or war that filled it. A wonderful place to learn and reflect.

Very interesting. Especially for those interested in history, war, etc. Small site only takes about 30 mins to look around. It doesn't seem to be maintained very well. So many of the tombstones were knocked over and there were fences around family plots that were heavily damaged which seems disrespectful in my opinion.

This is a great place for history buffs and a wonderful place to just get some peace and quiet. I thought, like some other reviewers, that the portion with the small gates needed some tlc...some gates were twisted, some headstones were knocked over, and there were tons of sticks and weeds. Even with all that though, I'm glad it's as... More
