Down the road from the battlefield, we find a Confederate cemetery.

Cemetary in Raymond

The graveyard isn't marked as public - in fact, it appears to be part of the extensive "front yard" of a nearby home. Most of the burials apparently consist of family members, going back long before the Civil War. However, one section is surrounded by a fence, has a flag, and the sign reads "Confederate Dead."

Confederate Dead

Most of the burials date to the Battle of Raymond. All of the tombstones have the Confederate cross, a unit designation, and sometimes a rank.

There is equality here - officers are mixed in among the ranks.
