Stones River National Battlefield

Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreeesboro, TN is the site of a civil war battle.  From the National Parks Service web site, "The Battle of Stones River began on the last day of 1862 and was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the Civil War.  The battle produced important military and political gains for the Union, and it changed forever the people who lived and fought here."

The visitor's center has a very good display of relics from the battle as well as numerous paintings, photographs, and other documents describing the battle.  There is a tour through the park however there is a not a lot to photograph.  Those interested in the history of the Civil War would find the tour quite interesting but those seeking photographs might not find the tour stops as interesting.

The National Park Service has a web site devoted to Stones River National Battlefield at This Link.
