The straight, even rows of tombstones inspire sadness and awe. A slow drive through is nice, but walking around the cemetery on a pretty day is far nicer. The staff at the visitors center is friendly and helpful. There is no downside to this place...except for the sacrifices of the many veterans laid to rest here.

I took a morning to peruse the various markers, and paying my respects to these wonderful heros from various wars. It is also a treasure trove for history and doing ancestry research as my sister and I are working on documenting our ancestral roots. Also the monuments and engravings are so inspiring and artistic. If you are visiting for the... More

There is a ton of history waiting for you as you wander through this beautiful peaceful park like setting. The grounds are immaculately kept. It is worth reading up about what you will find before you visit.

With relatives buried here I can say that it is a heart touching place to visit. Thousands of graves of the military and family members are buried here. On "Flag Day" it is so pretty. Go by and give respect to the honored past members of the military.

I have been here on many occasions. I have loved ones buried here so I visit the cemetery often. It is well manicured always. I have attended many Memorial Day, Veterans Day, etc., services there and they are always wonderful.

If you're a Chattanooga native or just passing through for a couple of days, you owe it to yourself to spend an hour or two in this very special place. Yes, I'm a Chattanooga native and my father owned a business just across the street from the National Cemetery. Therefore, I was well aware of this place even as a... More

The Cemetary workers do an excellent job of keeping the grounds in beautiful condition. They ensure everyone who visits maintain the appropriate respect. It is especially a great place to visit on national holidays as there are often some type of presentation taking place. As a retired US Army chaplain I have preformed several funerals in the Cemetary. The staff... More

The rolling hills of gravestones immediately affects you. It is amazing way to show the sacrifices and demonstrate the toll people have paid for our freedoms. We need to see this to remind us of the things our nation has been built on. We owe it to these men and women to preserve our rights by not giving them up... More

It brings home the sacrifices our soldiers have made for the country. Very interesting to drive and walk through areas of the cemetery and see the different graves from various wars. Seeing the section with the Civil War graves, many or which are unknown, is very sad. Not a place for young children, but can be a good place to... More
