The cemetary, was seen on Memorial Day, and each grave had an United Statesof America flag in front of it, honoring the departed soldier, even the many tombs of the unknowns, who fought and died, believing in a cause.

It was interesting to walk through this site. I was there for about 15 minutes. It is quite somber. When I was there it was the day before Memorial Day and every tombstone had an American flag in front of it.

I visit most every year. The scoits place flags on all the graves. I think there are over 7,000. Most are northern soldiers killed during the battle of Mirfreesboro or died of wounds from the battle of Franklin. Since this is a National Cemetary burials continue into the present. The grounds are lovely and its right at the Stones River... More

Stopped to pay our respects to the many soldiers here. The grounds are well maintained with easy access. It was a sad stop to see all the tombstones, many for unknown soldiers who all died for what a lot of people now seem to take for granted.

We wanted to visit the cemetery as troops from our state fought and died here. Walking thru the many graves looking for the headstones of those troops left us very respectful of all that they gave for this country. A definite must see.

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.
