There are several locations for the Battle of Stones River. There is some walking for each venue, but some have easy parking, where others have more walking involved. The main location for the Battlefield has a visitor's Center with restrooms, and National Park Rangers who show a film about the site. Across the street from it is the National Cemetery,... More

I can not see Russia from my back door, however; I can see Stones River National Battlefield from my living room. The Park is a wonderful place to visit and has an amazing interesting history concerning some of the bloodiest battles fought during the Civil War. You can look on line and find out when they schedule their reenactment battles... More

Great place to get outside and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. Walked through the tombstones in silent gratitude for all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice

Stopped here just to kill some time and spent hours. What an incredible part of history. So glad we stopped. We even saw some deer. Both of my miserable teens were also very happy visiting, highly recommend.

For all the talk about the importance of the battle, the park can be seen in around an hour and is split up around businesses and developments. There is a phone-in narrated driving tour which was very nice. LOVED how they used silhouette cutouts as visual representations of lines and positions, wish there were more and all the other battlefields... More

My wife and 90 year old Dad (no teens, though kids are welcome) visited here during their anniversary week while visiting family in the area. My wife is very interested in Civil War history which prompted us to do so. We were impressed with most everything about this place. Everything is very clean and well organized. The park personnel were... More

My husband and I visited during the anniversary week of the battle and were excited to learn that there were many ranger programs offered throughout the day. We attended three programs and they were all wonderful - it's amazing how much information that you can learn from the rangers that is not posted elsewhere. They truly bring history alive!

We love traveling to see National Parks so this was a must on our travel list. Nice history lesson and our 6 year old had a blast doing their junior ranger activities. They even did a swearing in with him because he did so many of them! Good walking/driving tour.
