Post Card Tuesday: Stones River Battlefield US Soldier Monument

The Stones River National Battlefield is a park in Murfreesboro, TN along the Stones River in Rutherford County, TN. The park commemorates the Civil War battle that took place here on Dec. 31, 1862 and Jan. 2, 1863. The park was established using public and private funds, with significant help from the NCStL railway, and is now under the oversight of the U.S. National Park Service.

As you can tell by the rows of grave markers, this is in the battlefield Cemetery. The plaque on it labels it as the Union Soldier Monument.
