Stone’s River National Battlefield

Made a visit to Stone’s River National a Battlefield on our way home from Nashville. It was a beautiful day to remember those soldiers who gave their lives in this battle. I had a 2nd Great Grandfather Aaron Ewing, who was in Co I Illinois of the Union Army.

  1. I grew up in Murfreesboro on Stones River feeling very connected to this battle. As children we were always aware that the river we played in had once run with the blood of wounded and dying soldiers. When I was researching my daughter’s paternal line, I discovered that one of her 3rd great-grandfathers was a Union soldier who died in battle and is buried here: Peter Wagoner/Wagner, CORP, Co C, 100th IL Inf. It is a small world – even across time.
