Oakland & Fraternal Historic Cemetery Park

Oakland Cemetery was established in 1863 when the city of Little Rock purchased a 160-acre estate in order to accommodate the Civil War dead. Through the years, this 160-acre estate has been carved into 7 distinct cemeteries: Oakland, Fraternal, 1-acre Confederate, 11-acre Confederate, National, Jewish Reform and Jewish Conservative. Owned by the City of Little Rock, the Oakland, Fraternal, and Confederate cemeteries are run by a city-appointed board. Oakland & Fraternal Cemetery Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
