I love military cemeteries, and this one is amazing. Such a beautiful setting and landscape. Some areas were under repair, but still nice. My only complaint would be that a group of girls were hanging out in the cemetery, throwing ropes in trees for some reason and laying out in bathing suits near the graves. I personally thought it was... More

If you have never visited a national cemetery you should see just one. Chattanooga's is nice and has the burial sites of Andrews raiders who stole the steam engine the General and a nice monument to them.

I am a cemetery freak anyway and to visit I site like this just takes my breath away. Need to fly over this one sometime, you can see the patterns in the rolling hills, but can't get the full affect from the ground.

This national cemetery is very beautiful, especially during holidays when flags are put at every marker. It is manicured to perfection and an impressive sight to see -- quite a remarkable place honoring our veterans and family members for their service.

I went there to seek out a distant family member who died during the Civil War. What a moving place! To see all those head stones and to find one from the family was special. I came armed with a name and grave site number and was directed to it immediately by staff in the office. They were helpful,respectful and... More

Both my parents are buried here but for the tourist their is a great deal history in this National Cemetery. Andrews Raiders were buried here after the "Great Locomotive Chase" during the American Civil War and there are plaques and monuments erected for them. Additional Civil War history comes from the soldiers from both sides buried there as well as... More

Our first visit here was for the funeral of a neighbor so it was a personal time. As we drove to the chapel we noticed headstones from 1864 and wanted to know more about the history of this peaceful place. Our next visit was on Memorial Day for the torchlight walking tour hosted by the National Park Service historian. We... More

A beautiful and tranquil National Cemetery. The Civil War buff would be interested because a number of Andrews Raiders - from the great locomotive chase, are buried there and there is a monument at the site.
