  • The country's first Medal of Honor recipients are buried here; the "Andrew's Raiders" of civil war fame (The Great Locomotive Chase) Also the gravesite of Desmond Doss the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor for actions above and beyond the call of duty. Nice detour off the beaten path
  • In 2006 Desmond Doss made Chattanooga National Cemetery his resting place. The man who saved 75 lives in WW2 and took 0 lives with a gun. Hacksaw Ridge was defeated by God and Doss, Amen.
  • I Love to come here visit my Grandparents graves and the peaceful quiet ! Always well kept .
  • This is absolutely a beautiful place with love and care for our loved ones that's passed on.
  • Cemetery is well kept and there is plenty of road access through the site. There is a basic loop that has parking parking as well as short spurs to go up the hill in the middle. The roadways are wide enough that a vehicle can easily pass another stopped car.

Where to stay in Chattanooga

Centrally located Chattanooga hotels offer comfortable rooms just a walk from the city's best shops, restaurants, and museums. Staying in the middle of everything can cost a bundle, so if you're traveling on a budget or simply prefer a bed and breakfast atmosphere, consider staying farther away from the central part of townwhile on holiday. Most budget-friendly inns located along the free electric shuttle route servicing the downtown area offer all the comforts of home at the fraction of the price charged by the big chains.
