Stones River National Battlefield, Georgia

On our drive back from Missouri, we like to find out of the way places to make a short pit stop, a local restaurant or historical place. We saw this battlefield on the map and decided to stop.
It was too hot to take the walking tour (even though there was some brave souls!) and we didn't want to spend that much time. There is a driving tour that is easy and you can dial into a recorded message at each stop. The employees were all very friendly and overall very educational (and free!). We have stopped at other battlefields and at the Andersonville Prisoner-of-War Camp.

There is a cemetery on site and a computer to look up names of your ancestors. A great place to visit and learn more about the Civil War.
