A big draw for this Midwesterner is visiting any Civil War battlefield. In this case the reward is spending time in the Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. I have been fortunate to visit it briefly twice now. The park consists of two sections. The battlefield and the national cemetery.
Park officials have placed chicken wire down the cannon to prevent animals and small children from crawling in.
I plan to visit the park again, educate myself on its history and showcase more of it.
