The Helena Confederate Cemetery is located in the southwest corner of the Maple Hill Cemetery on Holly Street in Helena, Arkansas. It is a small section of the larger cemetery, under one acre in size, and is marked by two significant memorials: the Confederate Memorial and the memorial to Confederate Army General Patrick Cleburne, whose burial here is the only known place associated with his life. The Cleburne memorial is a marble shaft 15 feet (4.6 m) in height, topped by an urn with flames coming from its top. The Confederate Memorial is a marble depiction of a soldier, mounted on a 30-foot (9.1 m) granite shaft, surrounded by pyramids of cannonballs and inverted cannons. The cemetery has more than 100 marked graves, 15 of which are unidentified Confederate dead, and 23 are of those killed in the 1863 Battle of Helena.It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Helena Confederate Cemetery and many more Helena attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Helena trip website.

Helena Confederate Cemetery reviews
The cemetery is understandably peaceful but to walk amongst the stones, it is very moving to see how many of the dead are unknown. If you're a history lover or just a weirdo who likes gravestones...

heard a lot about the place. Confederate graves and Confederate General graves. Some nice monuments to view, and nice country to see. But not much on visiting graves really.

My wife and I believe this is one of the most beautiful cemeteries we've been through. I'm a Civil War buff so we decided to detour down south a ways to visit the cemetery. The Confederate Cemetary sits atop a hill overlooking the rest of the other gravesites and is both beautiful and informational. So glad we made the detour, it was well worth it. If you have the opportunity take the time to visit, you'll be glad you did.
