Little Rock National Cemetery


Little Rock National Cemetery

Region: Central

County: Pulaski

Little Rock National Cemetery at 2523 Confederate Boulevard in Little Rock was initially used as a campground by U.S. troops. When the Union troops left, Confederates buried their dead on the west side. It was subsequently purchased by the U.S. government for a burial ground for occupation troops. A wall was erected between the Union and Confederate sections, but it was removed in 1913. Of particular note is the sculpture erected by the people of Minnesota to honor their troops who are buried in the cemetery.
