OLD CONFEDERATE CEMETERY
Contributed by Kim Torp

Located at the corner of Alabama Highway 82 and N. Prairie, behind Trinity Church  (erected 1909) and First Baptist Church (erected 1860, rebuilt 1902) in Union  Springs, Bullock County, Alabama.  This cemetery is obviously older than the  name would indicate since a number of the graves are prior to 1861.
