Stones River National Battlefield

On December 29th, I caught one of a variety of programs that the Stones River National Battlefield was having here in Murfreesboro for their 151st Anniversary.  I happened to be there during a musket and cannon demonstration where Rangers shared stories of the fight that took place 151 years ago.  The battlefield is a wonderful place to visit here in town.  It is about 570 acres of land where the Battle of Stones River was fought, 20 acres of which is now the Stones River Cemetery which, according to their website, has over 6,000 soldiers buried there.  For more information, visit their website, drop in at the visitor's center on Old Nashville Highway, or look them up on Facebook at Stones River National Battlefield.

Here is a sample of pictures I took that day.  (Click the photo to enlarge)
