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

I took my son and nephew to visit my mother at the national cemetery and they had a really nice experience.

It's a national cemetery, so don't expect fancy markers. However, if you "collect" cemeteries like I do, and value the history that can be found in them, this one has some special monuments. If you are just looking for a little peace in the chaos of your journey, this is a great place to walk, or sit, and find peace.... More

It was amazing to drive around the cemetery on Memorial Day and see all the flags. It was beautiful and gave us a great experience to tell our children about our veterans. Very moving day!

This is a beautiful cemetery. It's well laid out and well kept. Lots of history here. You can just sit and ponder over all the one who fought for what we believe in and stand for. My dad and I attended a funeral for a fellow World War II comrade and it was spectacular. Attention to detail, honor, respect.... Wow!

This cemetery is just so beautiful--well-kept, peaceful (and right in the middle of a VERY busy area) and a wonderful place for reflection and prayer. We go there at least twice a month just to say a special prayer for our servicemen and women and their families that are buried there. The Memorial Day Walking Tour is really something to... More

My wife and I drove through the entire cemetery during a recent stay in Chattanooga. The Chattanooga National Cemetery is listed on the register of National Historic Places. The Cemetery was developed for the burial of union dead in the Civil War Battles in and around Chattanooga. General Grant had his headquarters here during the Battle of Lookout Mountain. Rows...

This place really makes you think of the people who gave their lives to give us freedom. It's full of history, and so beautiful. I think even a non history buff person would enjoy driving through here enjoying the scenery.
