I always feel sadness and respect for those who died for a cause they believed in. I feel indebted for those who died so I am free to walk this hallowed ground.

So many young men perished in such a short time. The cemetery was very well maintained. The view of the river was beautiful.

It really brings home how many men sacrificed their lives in this battle. The reality of the horror is clearer than any textbook.

It was very peaceful and attractive. The information was respectful and not gaudy. The location was beautiful and I really had a sense of what happened here.

This is a well maintained cemetery with brick paths to help you move around. It set on a hill overlooking the Tennessee River which added to it's beauty.

National cemetery which includes many numbered graves of unknown casualties of the battle. Veterans of 20th Century conflicts are also buried here, some next to their wives. Not much in the way of monuments, aside from the headstones. Overlooks the Tennessee River at Pittsburg Landing.

You can tell the holiness of a cemetery upon arrival -- quiet and serene. So many headstones all lined up like the soldiers were when they were alive, even lines. Many have no names on them, just numbers. Large trees and many monuments of cannon and fireballs as tribute. Right along the back of he cemetery is the Tennessee River.... More

A monument to bravery, a testimony to pyrrhic victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat. Marble tombstones remember sacrifices of honor and pride. Sobering, frighteningly inspiring, the only response that rightly fits is silence. This is the real deal. The only thing missing was strains of Battle Hymn.
