Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NORTHWEST ARKANSAS -

Har­ri­ett Sis­son of Fayet­teville plays “Amaz­ing Grace” on bag­pipes Mon­day dur­ing a wreath-lay­ing cer­e­mony in recog­ni­tion of the 150th an­niver­sary of Fayet­teville Na­tional Ceme­tery. The De­part­ment of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs Fayet­teville Na­tional Ceme­tery hosted the event. The Re­gional Na­tional Ceme­tery Im­prove­ment Corp. an­nounced the do­na­tion of 2.2 acres to the ceme­tery. In 1989, the RNCIC, a group of ci­ti­zens, vet­er­ans and of­fi­cials of the city of Fayet­teville and the state of Arkansas, formed to raise funds to pur­chase land for the ex­pan­sion of the ceme­tery.
