The Stones River National Cemetery is directly accessible from the Stones River Bike/ Greenway. If you are into biking, Murfreesboro is a great place to visit! Although the trail is only 8-9 miles long it is one of my favorites. The Cemetery is on one end and Canonsburg on the other with awesome views of the Stones River along the... More

We drove across the street from the Park and walked around the military cemetery it was very sad in a way but at the same time it was beautiful. All the tombstones had a Christmas wreath ( all the same ). It was worth our visit.

This is one not to miss. Situated near the battlefield, this is the final resting place of Union soldiers.

This simple but dignified cemetery is where over 8,000 Union soldiers from the Stones River battle are buried. Over 2,000 are unknown. This is an easy and recommended stop while you are taking the the auto tour. There is a small parking lot where you can park and reflect on the many graves of soldiers lost during this extremely deadly... More

This is where the soldiers were buried after the battle at Stones River.. Some of the headstones are marked and some are unmarked, but it's a great place to see while you're at the museum.

Yet, one more outstanding presentation by the National Park Service of our nation's Civil War past. A must-see for anyone who values our national freedom.

This is a place that takes you back in time. You should inquire about the candle light tours into the cemetery. For those who like photography and history this is a place for you. It is worth the visit

The cemetery is located across from the visitor center for Stones River National Battlefield and information regarding the cemetery can be obtained there. While the majority of the people buried here are from the civil war, it was interesting to learn there were soldiers buried from other wars up to and including Vietnam when the cemetery became full.
