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.

Attention to Orders
No one should be allowed to walk on the parapets, nor move or sit upon the gabions, barrels, or sandbags that may be placed upon them.

by Order of
Major General William S. Rosecrans, commanding Army of the Cumberland, United States Army.

You are here at Fortress Rosecrans
After the battle of Stones River, Union troops fortified a vast area just outside downtown Murfreesboro. They named their fortress for their popular commander, General William S. Rosecrans. Three miles of walls protected the encampment and warehouses of the Army of the Cumberland. Here you can explore short trails that lead into a Civil War fort that remains mostly untouched by modern development. Exhibits along the way tell the stories of the soldiers who served here.
