Have always wanted to know more about the cemetery, so went to visitor's center and RENTED the audio tour. It is well done and gives history on many graves but $15 to rent? Thought maybe we misunderstood the fee and that the $15 would be returned when we returned the audio CD. Not so. Pretty expensive tour! Do wish the... More

We have been to other National cemeteries and had just toured the Vicksburg National Cementary yesterday. Again, it was so somber and hard to digest the number of unknown graves at these places. At the beginning, there were 3,805 graves, only 305 were identified and marked. The rest are unknown.

If you like history and/or old cemeteries, this is a must see. Stunningly beautiful monuments hundreds of years old in an idyllic setting under ancient live oaks and moss.

Huge cemetery with a number of graves including a Jewish section, Catholic section, African American section, and many Confederate soldiers. We were told a few years ago some guys came in after hours tearing up many tombstones and causing a million dollars in damages! We found coins and even folding money on some graves and the graves of women killed... More

Rows and rows of white markers as you would find in other National Cemeteries. But being on the banks of the Mississippi River reminds you of the somber events that lead to these sacrifices.

Beautiful place that fills your heart with gratitude for those brave souls who sacrificed their "all" to serve their country & beliefs. Many many "Unknown Soldier" markers. May each of them rest in eternal peace.

My husband and I are both veterans. This was a solemn surreal place. To gaze upon the scores of tombstones knowing that all who had been placed there fought for their belief in a place we called home. We walked upon the recent markers, and through the history of those who have given their life for the United States

We just drove through the cemetery and really enjoyed it! It is quite large with some very important Civil War Generals and Soldiers buried here. It is a lovely cemetery with Crepe Myrtle trees lining the drives. Looking forward to seeing it again when we return for Angels on the Bluff in November.
