The first two rows are Civil War to include Union and Confederate. This was the beginning of the National Cemetery program administered by the VA. The rest of this Cemetery is filled with veterans and families from other wars.

Last stop on the tour of Fort Donelson. This is a large cemetery with graves from the Civil War and later. It is not used anymore. Take the self-guided tour of Fort Donelson for information on the site.

We stopped here while touring Ft Donelson. The graves look like they have been taken care of. This is a quick stop but there is a building you can go in to learn more.

This place is in essence a place of honor for long ago fallen soldiers. One cannot help but have empathy for the soldiers who fought here over 150 years ago. How they were able to maneuver along this terrain was amazing. Over 13,000 men were...More

This is a beautiful small cemetery where veterans from all eras can be buried. It is a natural extension to your visit to Fort Donelson and is not that time consuming to see. You can spend some pleasant time there hiking or just observing nature...More

This is a small but well preserved Civil War cemetery, one of the oldest, with graves of the Union soldiers lost in this battle (and other veterans of conflicts since.)

I enjoy visiting cemeteries. They are a peaceful place where you can meditate on the past. This is a well maintained place. It is in the middle of a residential area. Definitely worth taking time for a short visit on your trip.
