This project was undertaken to provide the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration with a cultural landscape survey of Chattanooga National Cemetery. The 120.9 acre cemetery is located within the city limits of Chattanooga, Tennessee, and contains over 50,000 burials. Chattanooga National Cemetery was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996 as part of a multiple-property submission for Civil War Era National Cemeteries. The National Cemetery Administration tasked the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory ERDC-CERL to inventory and assess the cultural landscape at Chattanooga National Cemetery by creating a landscape-development context, a description of current conditions, and an analysis of changes over time to the cultural landscape. All landscape features were included in the survey because, according to federal policy on National Cemeteries, all national cemetery landscape features are considered to be contributing elements.
