As with any cemetery, you are respectful. Viewing this National site makes you think of the history in front of you and the people living and dying during such. It is good for any American to make this visit. You should visit if in Beaufort.

I am not an expert on cemeteries but this was a meaningful experience. Dedicated to the men and women who served our nation. From the Civil War to present. Very solemn and tastefully preserved. Makes you appreciate the sacrifices by the hundreds buried here.
