The Clarksville Confederate Monument is located in the south-central section of Oakland Cemetery in Clarksville, Arkansas. It is a white marble obelisk, 10 feet (3.0 m) in height, which is 21.5 inches (55 cm) square at its base. It is mounted on a limestone pedestal 2 feet (0.61 m) square and 22 inches (56 cm) in height. The lower portion of the obelisk is carved with an inscription commemorating the Confederate war dead, and its spire is adorned with a floral pattern.
