A beautiful memorial without much fanfare, this little plot of land serves as the resting place of the Civil War. Anyone who enjoys old cemeteries or Civil War history should take a minute to pay their respects to part of our Southern heritage. Much respect to our fallen soldiers.

I'm in Chattanooga on business but wanted to check out some of the sights. I stumbled upon this cemetery on TripAdvisor and found it well worth the 5 mile drive from my hotel (which was about 30 minutes each way due to Saturday mall traffic). It's was nicely mowed and kept up. I didn't think it was super difficult to... More

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
