This cemetery has soldiers interned all the way back to the civil war from both sides. Being a veteran myself and living in Chattanooga I will be buried here.

We visited Arlington last year and we thought this would be a good follow-up, especially since we were already in Chattanooga. While it doesn't compare to Arlington in size, it is nice that you can drive through and to different parts of it vs. having to walk everywhere. It is very well-maintained and laid out.

We decided to visit the cemetery after our trip to Battles of Chattanooga. I think we appreciated it a lot more. We stopped and seen Andrews Raiders monument right inside gate. Also stopped at office and got a visitors guide/historical information booklet. Which was very informative.

One of the most beautiful places in Chattanooga, Tennessee. You can drive thru the whole cemetery without walking. As you drive thru you can feel the beauty and solitude for... More

We visited the grave of a very distant ancestor. The grounds and the stones are very well kept. The staff, while busy, were still helpful and courteous.
