The oldest public cemetery in Fayetteville, containing over 1,100 grave markers, includes many local patriots. This cemetery contains graves of veterans from the Revolutionary War all the way through the Spanish-American War. Of military interest, stands the first Confederate Monument in NC, erected in 1868. The money to build the monument was raised by local women who sold raffle shares at $1.00, raising $300. The quilt was later presented to Jefferson Davis, the ex- President of the Confederate States of America, by the winner of the raffle.
