My girlfriend is from Chattanooga and never knew about this place. Between the Harley shop and the hotel, a dirt drive takes you to this resting place of 155 brave men. It's sad that their are only a few headstones to tell who these men are. My heart still breaks for the families who never knew where their loved one... More

This venue is an opportunity to reflect on the past, spend time in history and view the graves of those who so valiently fought. Spend an hour or more in quite thought, enjoy the serenity, read about the war and let your imagination roam. Listen for the whispers of those who are there, they may just tell you their story.

For over thirty years we have lived in the community and finally drove up the tight driveway. There is parking for a few cars, but I understand usually few visitors come by. The large stone walls are even and old, and the busy highway carries oblivious passengers. The large, creaky metal gate will open for you and there are button-activated... More

easy to miss. but good place to reflect upon the 155 should laid to rest here. no individual markers as this is a mass internment of confederate casualties from barge's army in 1862. not all that much to see but rock walls and entrance are impressive memorials.

This is a lovely, peaceful sanctuary so close to the hustle and bustle. Fortunately the friend I was visiting knew it was there and knew I was interested in the history of the area. This is the final resting place of 155 Confederate soldiers who remain largely unknown due to the deterioration of the original wooden grave markers. Some have... More

Happened on this by accident going to McKays book store. Very old headstones. Small, but quiet. Nice if you are into Civil War.

The beauty of this cemetery is the brick wall surrounding it. Once you're inside you'll find about 8 marked graves and one for the unknown soldiers. There is also a monument towards the back left but not much else. It's so out of place and strange to see this piece of history surrounded by modern buildings and garbage left behind.... More

The entrance is the biggest draw, the Cemetary is out of the way and a little hard to find, but it does contain a lot of history. Not nearly as spectacular as some of the other Civil War displays around the City but it is a solemn reminder of what can happen when happen when men think they are better... More
