Saturday, July 9, 11:00am-3:30pm

3501 Old Nashville Hway, Murfreesboro, TN

Stones River National Battlefield

The Civil War came to Murfreesboro in the summer of 1862. The opening of the season found the town living under an uneasy but peaceful occupation by a small Union force. Things got hotter in July as gunfire rang out in the city streets during a Confederate raid that briefly recaptured the town. Another occupation by even more soldiers in blue followed the departure of the raiders only to see the town free of almost any military presence as summer turned to fall. Listen as a ranger shares the stories of Murfreesboro’s tumultuous summer in 1862 using quotes from soldiers and civilians. Each program will include a musket firing demonstration.
