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... More

You won't find this cemetery very easily but the stop is worth while as it is the final resting place of Confederate soldiers who fought in the battle of Perryville and were brought back to Chattanooga to recover. It has been neglected over the years but some loving citizens have endeavored to bring some honor to the over 100 men... More

Years ago, this place was back way from everything. Now buildings have built up all around it. You can look through the gate, but you can't go inside. Not much to see, but for a civil war buff it is interesting.

A beautiful memorial without much fanfare, this little plot of land serves as the resting place of the Civil War. Anyone who enjoys old cemeteries or Civil War history should take a minute to pay their respects to part of our Southern heritage. Much respect to our fallen soldiers.

I'm in Chattanooga on business but wanted to check out some of the sights. I stumbled upon this cemetery on TripAdvisor and found it well worth the 5 mile drive from my hotel (which was about 30 minutes each way due to Saturday mall traffic). It's was nicely mowed and kept up. I didn't think it was super difficult to... More

My girlfriend is from Chattanooga and never knew about this place. Between the Harley shop and the hotel, a dirt drive takes you to this resting place of 155 brave men. It's sad that their are only a few headstones to tell who these men are. My heart still breaks for the families who never knew where their loved one... More

This venue is an opportunity to reflect on the past, spend time in history and view the graves of those who so valiently fought. Spend an hour or more in quite thought, enjoy the serenity, read about the war and let your imagination roam. Listen for the whispers of those who are there, they may just tell you their story.

For over thirty years we have lived in the community and finally drove up the tight driveway. There is parking for a few cars, but I understand usually few visitors come by. The large stone walls are even and old, and the busy highway carries oblivious passengers. The large, creaky metal gate will open for you and there are button-activated... More
