The Battle of Stones River was one of the bloodiest and most significant battles of the Civil War. The battle resulted in nearly 24,000 casualties and yielded significant military and political gains for the Union. Stones River National Battlefield offers visitors a chance to experience this critical event in our history by exploring the fields and forests where the fighting raged from December 31, 1862 to January 2, 1863.

You can start at our visitor center that includes a museum and orientation film. Visitors have a number of self-guiding tour options year round including a cell phone tour and app tour. Park Rangers offer regularly scheduled programs from May through October, and special interpretive events take place monthly.
