Look online and you can print a map from home to give you a free walking tour. It's very interesting to know how the Cemetary is set up. Each section is based on a state and the soldiers are grouped that way. The unknown soldiers are merely marked by a number and it's so heartbreaking to see so many. Stand... More

The cemetery is a bit of a counterpoint to the battlefield. Seeing one without the other would seem incomplete. It is a place of quiet reflection.

It's great that they keep history alive but we had a really hard time finding the spot where Lincoln made his speech. Maybe they could mark it better?

This was a moving and touching experience that brought to life how many men gave theirs. It's well taken care of and was well planned. Must see.

This well cared for cemetery is worth a walk through to see graves of those who gave their lives so long ago. In November, units and groups do specie ceremonies at "their" grave sites- flowers, wreaths, music (Remembrance Day, 3rd Saturday in Nov.). However, it it always interesting to walk through.
