This is a beautiful cemetery that is well managed. I dont know if I would go out of my way to see it but it was on the way to my next stop. It's about a 10 minute stop.

This cemetery may be very similar to other National Civil War Cemeteries, but its history and recent renovations reveal a very unique story. I am so proud to say that our government saw fit to restore dignity to the heroes buried here. There is a park ranger who pours her entire heart and soul into telling the stories of those buried in this sacred place. I have to admit, I am very bias, because, you see, after almost 135 years, my family found my great, great grandfather and he rests peacefully with his comrades here at Poplar Grove. Visit to remind yourself that freedom isn't free.

A very scenic and well-kept National Cemetery. The grounds were immaculate, and there was a large, new US flag flying high and proudly over the graves. The VC was closed due to the season, so it was a quick stop to take in the cost of the Civil War, and to provide some photographic opportunities. A stop on the Western Front driving tour.

This is a stop as a part of the Petersburg National Battlefield Park. It is a somber place to view graves of those who gave there lives during the Civil War.

Off-the-beaten path National Cemetery has many graves for known and unknown soldiers of the civil war primarily but also of other wars. Interesting interpretive leaflet available near gates; not always staffed; passport stamps available at battlefield visitors center. Separated from battlefield site. Now closed to burials.
