Graveyards of Carlock
Carlock, Illinois

Carlock is a village in McLean County, Illinois, with a present-day population of about 500.

Two miles north of the town, after North Church Street becomes N. 750 East Road, are two small, ordinary-looking graveyards, about a thousand feet apart, one on either side of the road. No signs give the name or history of the cemeteries, but these are no ordinary graveyards: they are the famous partisan cemeteries of Carlock.
