The visitor center was really great. There is a fantastic gun collection. The movie gave a clear explanation of the battle which helped us to enjoy the self-guided auto your. We are going back for a more in-depth visit soon.

When you come up to the cemetery you feel a sense of Peace and tranquility! The rows and rows of graves makes you want to visit each grave and have a moment of silence for the soul at rest.

We drove by this landmark cemetery. The grounds were very well kept - neat green grass and fresh white markers. I hope families are pleased with the final resting place of their loved ones. It made me proud, yet was very sobering to see the volume of markers. God Bless the USA.

There are American Service men and women buried on these hallowed grounds from Every American Conflict from the Civil War to Present day. Visiting this place gives you a new appreciation for the ones who give their lives for our country and our freedoms we all enjoy.

It was a humbling experience to drive through the cemetery grounds honoring our Nation's fallen veterans. With graves dating back from the Revolutionary War to present time, the cemetery also provided an excellent opportunity for education. We departed with... More

This is a well manicured, solemn cemetery. We drove around and stopped periodically to read markers dedicated to specific branches of the armed forces and the wars in which they fought.

Even my 15 year old was amazed and interested in what see saw. You have to see it for yourself to really appreciate what Nature... More

The Chattanooga National Cemetery dates back to late 1863 when it was formed shortly after the Battles for Chattanooga during the American Civil War. If you are a history buff (esp. one of the War Between the States/Civil War), this is a must visit for you. The cemetery is still active with burials from all the wars and conflicts the... More
