Old Bethany Cemetery
Also known as:  Brices Crossroads National Battlefield Cemetery

  • Highway 370 West, Baldwyn, Lee County, Mississippi, 38824 USA
  • 543 Memorials added (96% photographed)

Old Bethany Cemetery is located about four and one half miles west of Baldwyn on Hwy #370. It is across the highway from the newer Bethany Cemetery and A. R. Presbyterian Church.

Confederate dead from the June 10, 1864 Battle of Brice's Crossroads are interred together in a part of the cemetery, which has given rise to the erroneous notion that the plot is itself a separate, distinct cemetery part of the nearby National Park.

The Confederate Graves are physically located in the Old Bethany Cemetery mostly in one select area at the back or north side of the cemetery.
