“Historical National Cemetery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The National Cemetery is in the historical district of Beaufort. The soldiers buried there go back to the Civil War. History buffs will love this site.

“Worth visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were fortunate to visit during Memorial Day when every headstone was decorated with an American Flag and the annual ceremony was taking place. A lone bagpiper roamed the grounds and would play a song for families paying their respects along with a salute. It is a beautiful cemetary that honors the men and women who have given so much to our country. There are several very old headstones so the historical aspect is also interesting; we pulled up their website during our visit to help us locate graves of historical note. A good reminder that freedom isn't free and so much gratitude for those who serve our country.

Beautiful! One of the oldest National Cemeteries, dedicated by Lincoln at Gettysburg. The "Great Santini" is buried there.

“A military cemetary under the old oak trees draped in moss.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

We attended a funeral here in the past and like to visit it from time to time. It is a very well kept military cemetery with a staff that is willing to help answer your question and fill you in on the history. I love the palmetto and oak trees.
