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.

Our family of 5 drove thru the grounds on a snowy, March day. It was beautiful. It was a great opportunity to teach the kids history and respect!

We spent over an hour looking for a grave we looked up on the kiosk. The printed map was hard to understand and had the D section in the complete opposite direction it said it was. When we FINALLY found the section, there was no such grave number. However on a good note, the cemetery was beautiful and we got... More

We spent an hour or so at this national cemetery. We intended to only drive through, but we ended up getting out to walk and look at the graves and monuments. It was just after Christmas and green Christmas wreathes had been placed on many of the graves. Seeing so many markers of the brave men and women who have... More

Beautiful and serene cemetery in the heart of historic Chattanooga. Well maintained and easy to access. A wonderful tribute to our military heroes- my mom is buried here

We went here to see the monument to the men who participated in the Great Locomotive chase. Bunch of heroic men who stole a Confederate locomotive and tried to disrupt the railroad back to the Union lines as much as possible. The Confederate conductor turned out to be the spoiler and hero.

We drove through the entire cemetery and it was a reminder of the many buried there and in other cemetaries across this nation who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

I visited the Chattanooga National Cemetery after visiting the Chattanooga National Park to honor the Union Soldiers who died during the US Civil War in the area. The Cemetery itself is fairly large and honors those who served the nation from the civil War until today. It is easy to find and the grounds are open every day from dusk... More

I stopped here to get two virtual Geocaches and ended up staying awhile. The layout of the cemetery is, I don't know, soothing? The Civil War train chase monument is great and from there I wondered around reading about and soaking in the richness of the history. There are a lot of unique monuments but even the simple markers convey... More

Visited some family graves from a few generations of veterans. This was my first time in one of the country's national cemeteries. It was a very peaceful and moving experience. Being veterans day weekend also on the visit made the place even more memorable.
