The Confederate Cemetery is located on Jackson Street, off of N. Main Street in Farmville. Over 300 soldiers who died in Farmville hospitals were buried here during the Civil War. Although there were simple, wooden markers at the grave sites, these eventually deteriorated so identities were lost. As a final tribute, the United Daughters' of the Confederacy erected a large stone marker with the inscription: Faithful Unto Death, Confederate Heroes, 1861-1865.
