The first interment at Oakland Cemetery in Camden (Ouachita County) took place in the early 1820s. Perhaps its most famous occupant is Porter Clay, the half-brother of national politician Henry Clay. A portion of the cemetery, shown here, serves as the last resting place of several hundred Confederate soldiers and is the largest Confederate burial site in the area. While the Oakland Cemetery as a whole was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000, the Confederate section was added in 1996.
