December 31, 1862 - January 2, 1863

Stones River National Battlefield preserves some key portions of the ground where two great armies of Americans - some 81,000 men - clashed with each other. Their bitter, three-day struggle erupted on New Year's Eve 1862.

To explore their stories, start at the Visitor Center. Maps are available there to help you find battlefield points of interest.

You are here at the McFadden Farm
The final chapter of the battle of Stones River raged here along the frozen banks of Stones River on January 2, 1863. Attacking Confederate troops approached McFadden's Ford, a river crossing just below this hill, only to be smashed by the concentrated cannon fire of 57 Federal guns placed on this knoll.
