  • If you are interested in military history this is a must see. Started in 1863 during the Civil War for union soldiers, it officially became a national cemetery in 1870. One of the most beautiful place...  more »

  • Came to find my great great grandfather's grave. The folks in the office were wonderful. It's an old Civil War gravesite and while they couldnt tell where the exact site was, they could easily identify the location of section P and the road to get there. After a little sleuthing I found a section number close to what I was looking for. Counting down I found the right row and then after some more counting I came right to the marker. Et voila, "E. Wilkinson, G Company, 26 Illinois Infantry 13 March 1864). The cemetery itself is a reminder that this is perhaps the best example of the way our military members deserve to be treated. I sensed great respect and dignity with an honest desire to honor our nation's fallen service members. Thanks Chattanooga Naional Cemetery and thank you Dept of Veteran's Affairs. My only issue with the whole excursion today is that the address of the cemetery is officially 1200 Bailey Ave but the only entrance is around the corner on Holtzclaw. It wasn't a show stopper by any stretch of the imagination but following my GPS to a previously unknown location didn't get us to the entrance. Again, it wasn't a real problem, just a perplexing inconvenience that was quickly resolved. Dale Durnell, SMSgt, USAFRet (1964-1991)
  • Beautiful cemetery my father is buried here and family that goes back to Civil War
  • 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.
  • Very clean, very well groomed grounds. Staff is respectful, but efficient. Love the American flag flying high on the hill above the resting places of our heroes.
  • These people went beyond to help my son and I plan What we were not ready for.. They were great in All they did for our Family..
