“over 6,100 Union soldiers buried here”

When Chaplain William Earnshaw, the first Superintendent of Stones River National Cemetery, wrote these words, he and the 111th United States Colored Infantry were nearing the end of nearly a year of locating and reburying Union soldiers from the battlefield, Murfreesboro, and the surrounding area. They began the work in October 1865. Today, more than 6,100 Union soldiers are buried in Stones River National Cemetery. Of these, 2,562 are unknown. Nearly 1,000 veterans, and some family members, who served in the century since the Civil War are also interred there.

Stones River National Battlefield Park is a great place to take a hike and learn about the Civil War. My daughter especially liked the Junior Ranger program, where she earned a badge for completing an activity book about the site and its history.
