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

It's hard to describe the experience of touring the National Cemetery. Moving, sobering, reflective, emotional, although appropriate, seem inadequate. It makes us appreciate even more what our military forces have given us during our history.

I stopped primarily because I wanted to see the monument to the Great Train Chase from the Civil War, and explored a bit more of the cemetery. The monument is right in front, so if that is your sole reason to visit you don't need to get a map or ask for directions. If you go early in the day,... More

Recently we visited the National Cemetery in Chattanooga for our first time, trying to find a particular marker for a friend who wanted a picture of it. I was impressed with the availability of directions from the kiosk (even after hours) to a particular grave. I was surprised at the size of the cemetery and number of markers there. Seeing... More

My husband is a history buff and wanted to stop here. It was painless for two teens and myself because the scenery was beautiful with mountains in the distance. We also learned about the great train chase of the civil war. The bathrooms were clean and the staff was vey nice.

The views from the road driving by were what made us find the entrance and drive throughout this cemetery. A very sincere tribute to all the fallen members of service from Tennessee. Very neatly kept, and the brilliance of all the white markers was stunning.

Unfortunately, I have attended two family funerals here in the past 7 months. Both services were very professional, comforting, and uplifting. I love the color guard and wanted to thank the men but they quietly disappeared. The grounds of the cemetery are well kept and the scenery is beautiful. I'd love to have the time to visit all the memorial... More
