This was impressive and lovely. It won't take that long to go through (although on both sides of a street), unless you want to walk through and look specifically for a grave. There is a grave locating computer to help you if you need it. Open until dusk, opt for showing up late in the day. The light is beautiful... More

Our RV campground host gave us a CD to use for touring the cemetery. We also were provided a map at the Visitor's Center. It was only after we got turned around in the middle of the tour did we realize that the CD and the map did not correspond. With the confusion and narrow roads we missed a lot... More

Lot of history, but no where to park. No guidance so that you know what in the world you're looking at or why it is so historical.

Beautiful cemetery that salutes our country's heroes. The cemetery has several tiers and has a great view of the Mississippi River.

The setting for the cemetery is absolutely beautiful - it is located in an area with rolling hills and valleys. I went at sunrise and was totally awestruck by this gorgeous cemetery.

I loved driving and walking through this cemetery. The wrought iron and the old headstones in the different sections of the cemetery have an untold story of these lives that are buried here. It was fascinating to wonder about all of it.

There are two historic cemeteries in Natchez that happen to be side by side. Looking at earlier reviews, it is apparent that many visitors have gotten the two confused. The National Cemetery is for deceased U.S. service personnel and their spouses. All of the headstones are uniform and perfectly aligned, much like almost every National Cemetery I have ever visited.... More

Am not a frequent visitor of cemeteries but was struck by the reverence to those who have served their country and how many graves were of unknown soldiers; still discussed in terms of the rights of the confederates.

Natchez National Cemetery is uniquely set up compared to other National Cemeteries I have visited. There are several elevation changes with graves set on a curve in some sections. This NAtional Cemetery is very unique and a great way to honor veterens while in Natchez

If you want to really get a sense of how "senseless" much of the Civil War was, drive or walk through this cemetery and note how many of the graves are "Unknown US Soldier". Then go down the road to the Natchez City Cemetery and look the same sort of graves marked "Unknown Confederate Soldier". Then read a history of... More
