This weathered headstone located in the City Cemetery in Bentonville (Benton County) marks the burial site of prominent politician Alfred Greenwood. After moving to Arkansas in 1838, Greenwood enjoyed an active career in local and state politics. During his career, he served as a state representative, prosecuting attorney, circuit judge, U.S. congressman, and state tax collector for the Confederacy. The city of Greenwood, one of the dual seats of Sebastian County, is named in his honor.
