    Those who would most enjoy this are people with a deep interest in the Civil War and knowledge of the battles and aftermath in Chattanooga. Those buried here died in local "hospitals" after the battle...  more »

    This is a very moving place to see. You must go. Many young men and boys lost there lives in Chattanooga. It is part of our history as a nation.  more »

    I had to climb walls to get inside (perhaps an entrance I couldn't see) and was saddened - perhaps lack of funding but the grounds were not kept. Not a lot of advertising - I stumbled on it.  more »

    Silverdale Confederate Cemetery: A Place where the tree hallows I am a lover of History and Archeology…good reasons to travel. While visiting friends in Dalton, GA, they invited me to visit historical sites in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This cemetery received my attention. A brief story tells us that the 155 unknown confederate graves belong to soldiers that died from disease. Apparently they were wounded during the Kentucky campaign of General Braxton Bragg. I was also told an interesting fact, apparently among the graves, there is one that belongs to an African American male and a nurse. The place is quiet and the trees do moved by the soft breeze. I suppose they do rendered respect to the ones gone. Regardless of what they believed, they made the ultimate sacrifice, dying for a cause. The cemetery is located on an access road off of Old Highway 11 in Chattanooga, near the Bonny Oaks Drive exit from Interstate 75. Travel, learn and share!

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.
