Stones River Battlefield: Tree at McFadden Cemetery

SRNB: Tree at McFadden Cemetery

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.

The Mcfadden Cemetery and farm is a disjointed area separated from the rest of the park. While it is nearby, it's the only part of the National Battlefield located to the east of Broad St.
