The United States was consumed by the Civil War from 1861 to 1865. Millions of individuals were swept up in the chaos of the conflict as the war raged for over four years. Come and explore the graves and memorials which showcase incredible individual stories from the Civil War in a docent led tour.

Please come prepared with comfortable and weather appropriate clothing and shoes, as the tours often stray from the main paths.

The Cemetery is closed to dogs on Saturdays from 11am – 3pm.

Reservations are required and a tour reservation is a $5 donation.

Saturday tours begin at 11 am, rain or shine. Visitors may meet docents at the front gate of the cemetery located at the corner of E St. and Potomac Ave.
