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.

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.

There is a plot map and a directory, but since so many of the soldiers were buried in trenches, you might not be able to find the person you are looking for. You can go on the cemetery web site and use the app they offer to... More
