Fort Smith Military National Cemetery. The Fort Smith National Cemetery is the oldest original cemetery of the states three national cemeteries. The other two are in Fayetteville (Washington County) and Little Rock (Pulaski County). At the end of fiscal year 2005, there were 13,127 interments. The first recorded burial was that of surgeon Thomas Russell. He was a War of 1812 veteran who was with the original company of riflemen who landed on December 25, 1817, at Fort Smith (Sebastian County). He died there on August 24, 1819.

From April 23, 1861, to September 1, 1863, Fort Smith was under the control of the Confederate army. During this time, many Confederate soldiers were buried at Fort Smith, including 475 unknown Confederate soldiers. Two significant Confederate burials were Brigadier General James B. McIntosh and Brigadier General Alexander E. Steen.
