Unless you want to read every headstone, you'll spend more time trying to find a place to park than at the cemetery. It's cool that it exists but the headstones aren't original, the information about the soldiers scant. Online pictures would have sufficed.

As evidenced by some reviews that talk about "bad choices" the Southern soldiers made, it is obvious that some people do not know history at all, and cannot read, or understand, what is right in front of them. When you look at the grave markers,...More

Great place to remember veterans of our country. Go when the weather is good, not too hot. I hope this cemetery remains as a reminder of sacrifices made by soldiers.

Pretty cool place, hard to park nearby because it's enclosed in a fence. There's a lot of history here you may have to park down the block or at a business to get there.

It's a bit out of the way and in a neighborhood that appears to be a little run down. Parking is a bit of a concern since there is no parking lot. However, it should only take 10-15 minutes to visit and take a few...More
