Exceptional opportunity to pay your respects to some of the earliest veterans of our country. Beautiful views of the river are a plus when visiting this cemetery.

“Beautiful Resting Place”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

It was a bit chilly and damp, fog rolling up off the river and smoke from local mills drifting on the breeze. The departed lay quietly in their resting places, covered by a carpet of well manicured lawn and a winter quilt of fallen leaves. It made me pensive and respectful and ....proud of them. They believed, they fought, they died. Driving through I felt a kinship based on history. Check it out. I recommend it highly.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

My wife ams I are civil war enthusiasts and as we ravel the country we are stopping at all the battlefields we can. For me this is#2 on the must see list. Right behind Gettysburg. The Iron clad is one of the highlights. Don't miss it. Also allow plenty of time. We were there for at least 7 hours. So you might want to allow 2 days and take your time. That is if your into that sort of thing.

“Better perspective of the sacrifices given here”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

The national cemetery is a place for quiet reverence after touring the Vicksburg battlefield. It gives you a much better perspective of the sacrifice of these soldiers.
