Lots of civil war graves as well as grave of the ‘hanging judge’, Isaac C. Parker (section 9, grave 4000). Way to many Unknown Soldiers, hard to imagine for any family.

Beautiful and respectful place. Flags decorate headstones on National holidays and wreaths and Christmas. It is a beautiful place to pay respect to those who have served.

Any National Cemetery is sobering. Our nation's finest and heroes are buried here. Sometimes it pains me when I see children just running around between the graves and laughing, it would help to have some signs posted that this is a very special place and...More
