American Heroes are Memorialized at this site. It was an honor to be at this site. This is the final resting place of a dear friend's Father.

Pretty good size than what we expected. Very peaceful and serene, and photogenic. Make sure you go to the top and you will get a panoramic view of the cemetery.

This is absolutely a beautiful cemetery a very respectful place. And also ties in the Great Train chase from the story in Kennesaw Georgia train museum. There is a memorial erected for the Civil War soldiers and one civilian that were captured by the Confederacy after stealing a train.

I am a member of the Boy Scouts of America and every year we placed flags on the graves for Memorial Day. It is an awesome site to see. Thank you for the ones who gave their all!

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.

This is a well kept cemetery for our fallen soldiers and veterans. It is well manicured and an impressive sight.
