“Stones River Battlefield (Tours: to the victor goes the spoil)”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you want to know about the Civil War...read books from and representing both sides. The war was about heavy taxation of the south, high tariff, and unfairness. Slavery was incorporated to make it "sell better". Oh well,....you will not get the complete story from the guides ..

“Interesting!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I enjoy the history of the civil war and it was neat to experience the location where men fought and died for their beliefs.

“Fun day!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We have lived in the area for 15 years and have never been here. Then it looked like we may be moving away and I thought we had better start seeing some of the attractions. We started with the battlefield. It was an awesome day. Just my hubby, son and I. Educational and peaceful. We did our own thing and had a great time. Made a day of it

“The Battlefield”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The visitor center is very clean, informative and a great gift shop. The rangers are very helpful. They offer a lengthy tour with a guide or you can give yourself a self-guided tour. I have always done the self-guided tour. They take a lot of care maintaining the grounds and have special civil war events throughout the year!!!

“Excellent all around”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This battlefield is a must-see if you are in the Middle Tennessee area. It is nicely preserved and well-maintained. It has a beautiful visitors center with a small museum. You can see all manner of artifacts from the battle including authentic uniforms, rifles, cannon, and even the Medals of Honor awarded to those who fought in this terrible battle.
