There is a lot of history and as we walked around tears welled up in my eyes for these great men and women who served for our country. This is a great stop to pay respects for those who served...

From the outside of the cemetary you will a peaceful vibe come across you. We went in the evening, just before dark, the cemetary was not open, but we still left in awe and grateful. We were there 04JULY2015

The National Cemetery is a beautiful spot. Having had a Dad who was a veteran, it was an especially comforting and peaceful visit.

Very informative about the confederate soldiers buried there. They only had numbers on their head stones and not names.

When I think of a National Cemetery, I think of Arlington. There is no comparison; however, Chattanooga keeps this hallowed ground immaculate and certainly shows pride for those that have served.

This is an immaculately kept memorial to our fallen soldiers. It doesn't take a long visit to see the oldest parts and newest of the cemetery. The perfectly kept rows of white marble tombstones will truly move you.

Don't drive by this National Historic site without paying your respects. My girlfriend and I did on Memorial Day Weekend, and we got to see the Boy Scouts placing a single flag on each grave site. We must have walked for 30 minutes just reading the headstones and comment on things like "Wow, this guy was really young," or "What... More

It is hard to believe how many of our nation's heroes rest in the National Cemetery. I took my son there and it was a truly enlightening experience. The highlights for us were the area that is dedicated to the unknown fallen from the Civil War and the area around the top of the hill where many memorial tributes are... More

I always think national cemeteries are an important part of our nation's story. I brought my kids and nieces to see this site while visiting Chattanooga. We drove the complete loop through the cemetery. There was a lot of construction at the time of our visit though it didn't interfere with our ability to see the space. We stopped at... More
