We only spent a few minutes here. The cemetery is the final resting place for those who gave their lives defending their beliefs. The grounds are well kept and there is a small parking area if you wish to get out and stretch your legs.

The Stones River National Cemetery is a sad and somber place to visit. There are service members as young as 14 years old buried here. Can you imagine fighting for your country at 14? We came by in the day when folks were rehearsing for tours. We got an invite to tag along on their rehearsal. The performance was amazing.... More

Nice way to spend a few hours. The area is historical but beautiful. There are some walking trails and areas where you can take a driving tour.

This is a lovely cemetery. It is a national cemetery, so even though it is connected to a civil war battlefield it has graves dating to Vietnam. I would definitely recommend going on a tour since the signage doesn't give the full story.

The historic national Stones River battle site is insightful. The cemetery itself is beautiful and very moving. The easy self-guided driving tour over a couple miles is fascinating, with plaques and maps, and recordings and details you can follow on your cell phone, about the battles, soldiers, strategies, etc.

Took friends from out of town to the cemetery. They were impressed with the interpretive elements, and we all appreciated the detail taken to explain the context.

The Stones River National Cemetery is a breath-taking sight as you stand and realize how many lives were lost in just this one battle in the war between the states in America's history. It becomes so real when you look across and see the small white markers as far as you can see in every direction and realize that these... More
