This is a beautiful cemetery. Well kept, with the battlefield right across the street for tours and re-enactments. Their is also a gift shop. They have activities for children as well at the visitors center.

This large, beautiful Civil War cemetery is just across the street from the Stones River National Battlefield and Visitor Center. I enjoyed a few minutes of peace here on a misty fall morning.

Very glad we stopped to visit this national cemetery from the Civil War. Thousands of graves in this impressive and beautiful setting. It was a little troubling that only Union dead were allowed to be buried here. They were all Americans.

Toured both the Stone River Battlefield and Cemetary. I really enjoyed the tour stop feature that allows the user to dial a number and hear more information about the tour stop.
