The cemetery is located across the street from the visitors center, or if your on the driving tour you can also park on that side. There are over 3000 graves on this sight and most of them have no names. It was very peaceful, and sad.

Easy tour by car and has flat walking trails available. Staff is very helpful. The guided tour has interesting stops and tells the story of the soldiers who fought and died there.

I drove though the battle field and this was across the street from where you exit. Well maintained and full of history. Great spot for a photographer. A reminder of how many people of lost their lives for our country.

It always takes my breath away to witness the tributes given to Americans in uniform, as they well deserve. This is especially true in a cemetery designed and maintained with such respect. It is also a wonderful place to walk around, reflect on the history of these events, and soak in the hallowed and peaceful surroundings.

Very well kept historical cemetery. It was nice to walk around and learn about everything. Be careful crossing the street to get to the cemetery from the museum.

This National Cemetery is the final resting place for Union soldiers. No southern soldiers are buried here. This is a very solemn place and is a beautiful place to visit.

Well taken care of and located across from the battlefield, it is pretty typical for a Civil War cemetery.

This cemetery is exceptionally well maintained. Verses from the famous poem "the Biouvac of the Dead" are posted along the drive in the middle of the burial grounds, which helps drive home the solemness of the site. Just outside the cemetery is the Hazen's Brigade Monument, the oldest Civil War monument in the U.S., having been erected in 1863. It... More

It is amazing how many men died here in such a short amount of time, fighting for the side they believed in. Looking over all of the grave makers of the union soldiers (the Confederate soldiers were buried elsewhere) can almost bring you to tears when you think about the thousands who died here in one of the fiercest battles...
