To stand at the entrance of this cemetery and gaze across the field at the markers gives one a sense of sorrow. Sorrow that so many had to die on both sides of this war. The first grave we saw was of a young drummer boy. I believe he was 10 years old. It brings tears to my eyes. The... More

Visited on a beautiful, very warm day and found myself tearful at the site. A somber yet beautifully kept place for many. Being a parent of a current US Marine, my heart was touched at the reminder that life is sacred.

You have to be humbled by all the men who died for our Country. It is a peaceful setting with large trees. A place I'm sure anyone would approve of as a final resting place.

It is a very peaceful place to... More

Went with our boy scout troop. Great place with lots of living museum talks. Loved the one about the drummer boy. The entire site is superior visit, do the tour for sure. The cemetery is beautiful as an honored space.

This is a Union Cemetery. Unfortunately, there is not an equivalent for the Confederate forces that also perished here since both sides suffered great casualties. Differences in headstones are due to whatever policies are in place at that time when a headstone needs to be replaced. The originals are all cubed shaped and numbered. As they get damaged or otherwise... More

Beautiful setting for a very sad walk honoring the men who fought and died defending their beliefs. Very nicely kept and worthwhile spending time there.
