Well taken care of and located across from the battlefield, it is pretty typical for a Civil War cemetery.

This cemetery is exceptionally well maintained. Verses from the famous poem "the Biouvac of the Dead" are posted along the drive in the middle of the burial grounds, which helps drive home the solemness of the site. Just outside the cemetery is the Hazen's Brigade Monument, the oldest Civil War monument in the U.S., having been erected in 1863. It... More

It is amazing how many men died here in such a short amount of time, fighting for the side they believed in. Looking over all of the grave makers of the union soldiers (the Confederate soldiers were buried elsewhere) can almost bring you to tears when you think about the thousands who died here in one of the fiercest battles...

Very well kept grounds and directly across the street National Battlefield. Great place for field day or just time alone. Very respectful place to just appreciate those who gave all.

I have been to many of the major U.S. cemeteries in the country including Arlington and the area at Little Big Horn. The Stones River National Cemetery has its own feel, and though it is near businesses on the other side of the railroad track, the fact that it is beside the railroad tracks they fought for is haunting. It... More

A well maintained cemetery with cool grave markers and monuments. An excellent visit to ponder the history of war in America.

It was well taken care of, but not much to satisfy an 8 and 10 year old. Lots of room to run though.

Tony and I went to the Stone River National Cemetery located across the street from the Visitors Center. It is very nice place to walk around and enjoy the quietness and feel their lost souls. Over 3,000 soldiers both Confederate and Union lost their lives here and are buried. In the visitors center you can find where certain family members... More
