Sad to go there and reflect on all the lives lost anyone in the area should go and see what they think. While we were there the wind started blowing a great deal and felt like maybe some unseen others were trying to reach out to us.

It's a lovely peaceful setting near the downtown core. Very reverent. As of December 2014, all the workers there were Veterans which is a nice touch. Bear in mind that you can be in quite a traffic jam if there is a burial party just arriving at the check in area and thus you may have to wait a good... More

It's worth a stop to see the beauty and serenity of this wonderful national cemetery. This national cemetery run by the VA is a great place to reflect. It has fallen soldiers here from all past wars and is the only place known were you can see 3 battlefields at once. History buffs will love the miniature "General" from the... More

The 2nd largest National Cemetery in the country after Arlington. Acres of white marble headstones chronicle the many hundreds laid to rest here that either served or gave their lives for our freedoms we enjoy. Also a monument to "The General", the locomotive that was stolen from Georgia. I have been to several funerals here, everytime you hear the 21... More

I love military cemeteries, and this one is amazing. Such a beautiful setting and landscape. Some areas were under repair, but still nice. My only complaint would be that a group of girls were hanging out in the cemetery, throwing ropes in trees for some reason and laying out in bathing suits near the graves. I personally thought it was... More

If you have never visited a national cemetery you should see just one. Chattanooga's is nice and has the burial sites of Andrews raiders who stole the steam engine the General and a nice monument to them.

I am a cemetery freak anyway and to visit I site like this just takes my breath away. Need to fly over this one sometime, you can see the patterns in the rolling hills, but can't get the full affect from the ground.

This national cemetery is very beautiful, especially during holidays when flags are put at every marker. It is manicured to perfection and an impressive sight to see -- quite a remarkable place honoring our veterans and family members for their service.

I went there to seek out a distant family member who died during the Civil War. What a moving place! To see all those head stones and to find one from the family was special. I came armed with a name and grave site number and was directed to it immediately by staff in the office. They were helpful,respectful and... More
