I am not a particular student of the Civil War but I like history in general and the Civil War was such a pivotal moment in American history it's hard not be fascinated by it. Stone's River was a particularly bloody battle of the Civil War; 1/3rd of all combatants (Union and Confedeate) were counted as casualties (killed, wounded, or... More

We went through the visitors center and watched a video. They have an excellent exhibit which is free and takes a little over an hour plus the video. Well worth the trip. A major battle took place here.

My husband is a Civil War buff so I get an education any time we go to a battlefield. We live very close to Stones River so we've been here several times. There could be more markers. I'm assuming a lot were taken out by the tornado that ripped through the park and so I'm hoping they'll be replaced. There's... More

We have been visiting SRNB since 1993. It is a wonderful place to visit with lots of history about the war. We especially enjoy the Hallowed Ground Lantern Tour.

The visitor center park rangers are very knowledgeable. Gift store is small but okay. Trail is about 6 miles. It is drivable but also a nice paved trail along park. Not like Shiloh Battlefield but this battle was critical to the civil war.

They have put a lot of effort to make this an interesting history lesson. Take the time to walk the battlefield and get the audio tour. Don't forget to visit the National Cemetery - well worth the time. We also attended a "ghost tour" of the cemetery narrated by different folks in period costumes - so interesting - they brought...

My son enjoyed completing the Jr Ranger program and earning his medal. We enjoy learning more local history when we explore places like this.

We stopped on a whim and were we ever glad we did. The park ranger gave a wonderful detailed narrative of the battle and just brought it all to life. If you have an hour or two, please make the stop. You will be glad you did.

Very interesting Civil War visit for anyone interested in the Civil War. Be sure to take the tour with a guide. Then drive around and through the battle field. Cemetery also very interesting.

I find it weird to rate and review national parks. But since Trip Advisor has that category, I will add my voice. I am not a Civil War buff; I am a National Park visitor and writer. I look at parks as a way to unify the nation and to explain history to nonexperts. Stones River was the site of... More
