I made a quick stop at the Cold Harbor National Cemetery while visiting the National Park. It is across the street from the Garthright House and the Hanover County Cold Harbor Park. It is one of the smaller national cemeteries that I have been to, but still has the same effect. I would recommend parking at the park across the street as there is just a couple of tight parallel parking spots directly in front of the cemetery.
The layout of the cemetery doesn't differentiate from the different wars, so you will need to walk through the entire area to look for the Union dead who are currently buried there. There are also a few monuments inside the cemetery to enjoy. Taking a few minutes to just take in everything will give you an appreciation of our past.
If you are visiting the Cold Harbor and/or Gaines' Mill National Battlefields I would recommend visiting the Cold Harbor National Cemetery.
