This site, just behind the old basketball arena (Tad Smith coliseum) on the Ole Miss campus, is a stark reminder that war is hell. So many lives lost- sons, brothers, fathers, husbands- in a war that was so unecessary, but passions rose and diplomacy failed....More

The marker is really all that suggests this area to be a cemetery. Still the feeling of walking on hallowed ground was present, and the marker gives interesting facts.

This is an old civil war graveyard where soldiers from both sides were buried. It's an old site in the middle of the Ole Miss campus. There's not much to see here except one large stone monument. If you are on campus it is worth...More

This is a great place to bring someone, especially young kids, to show them a part of history. It's on campus and easy to get to.
