This is a tiny cemetery. I expected headstones with Civil War information on them. Instead, I discovered that this well kept jewel is th final resting place of thousands of unknown men who died in different Civil War battles. They were exhumed and reinterred here. I was saddened by the sheer number of men who died away from home and... More

Beautiful place to ponder your soul. Makes one wonder about those born in the 20th (and 21st century). Wow what a place that can be overlooked but definitely worth it.

We stumbled across this massive military cemetery and were not disappointed. It was maintained to the nines! A very gorgeous park and place of rest.

Many years ago, my husband and I stumbled on this small Confederate cemetery across from our hotel in Chattanooga. We had never heard of it even though my husband is a student of everything pertaining to the Civil War. We went back recently and found it well-preserved and cared for. It's not a battlefield, but it is a gem of... More

I am part of a group of motorcycle riders who travel from Los Angeles to Washington DC every year bringing recognition to Veterans as well as our present military. We ride the Southern route and one of the stops is Chatanooga, TN - the Harley Davidson dealership and the Silverdale Confederate Cemetery. This Cemetery is one of the stops I... More

You can feel the history as you walk the grounds. It is well-maintained with a beautiful stone wall encompassing the cemetery and an iron gate entrance. It's hard to imagine what this area must have been like back during Civil War days.

This place is right next to Harley Davidson and right across the street from the waffle house and hotels. You enter in see the american flag and the confederate flag. It's a small little cemetery with all these confederate soldiers with names unknown. It's pointless to me actually. Waste of space. No history.

After seeing the national cemetery in Chattanooga, we decided we should see this. It is small and off the main road down a thin one lane trail, but worth seeing. The stone walls and old grave markers really make it a special place to come and think about the average confederate soldier who fought in the war. A sign on... More

The cemetery is just off the interstate, down this little gravel lane. Only a few stones are marked.

Very nice cemetery, a little out the way, but worth it. More than 100 Confederate soldiers are buried there. I was there when the trees were blooming and it was beautiful.
