Large well laid out military cemetary

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

After seeing this while riding on a train we just had to go back and drive and see up close. Everything about this is awesome and how well everything is taken care of and the love of the site is awesome.

It's hard to be enthusiastic for a place that in my experience has always included a funeral service. Two different colleagues have recently been interred here. The locale is impressive, especially if you drive to the top of the hill. The graves are well tended, and the expanse commands the respect earned by the many veterans busied here.

We visit this cemetery when in the area, as we have relatives there. As a national cemetery honoring those who served, it keeps up the high standards that is expected. We have always been very pleased with the upkeep; the groundskeepers do an excellent job of maintaining.

The National Cemetery is very nicely maintained. The staff was friendly and knowledgable. This was an emotional time but the respect showed to my loved one was comforting. The 21 gun salute was a joy to watch.
