This is a lovely cemetery. It is a national cemetery, so even though it is connected to a civil war battlefield it has graves dating to Vietnam. I would definitely recommend going on a tour since the signage doesn't give the full story.

The historic national Stones River battle site is insightful. The cemetery itself is beautiful and very moving. The easy self-guided driving tour over a couple miles is fascinating, with plaques and maps, and recordings and details you can follow on your cell phone, about the battles, soldiers, strategies, etc.

Took friends from out of town to the cemetery. They were impressed with the interpretive elements, and we all appreciated the detail taken to explain the context.

The Stones River National Cemetery is a breath-taking sight as you stand and realize how many lives were lost in just this one battle in the war between the states in America's history. It becomes so real when you look across and see the small white markers as far as you can see in every direction and realize that these... More

What a place to represent our fallen soldiers. Walk through and imagine what it must have been like for all these soldiers and the ages. This is well maintained and so thoughtful to give what we can to these families for their loved one.

This is an amazing cemetery but it also is a very sobering reminder of how this war changed America. To see a lot of the dead soldiers graves, including so many unknown soldiers, really was a sobering experience. I was very much struck by this place. If you want a history lesson, go here and the visitor center and see... More
