Highly recommended! Beautiful cemetery with benches located all around where you can sit and reflect on gratitude for what these men and women did!

We have been here a few times and the last time the weather was perfect for roaming around the site. The story of the Petersburg Crater is one of the most intriguing of the Civil War. The Visitor's Center is one of the best we...More
