On This Day: Battle of Stones Begins

 
Union and Confederate forces met near Murfreesboro, Tennessee On This Day in 1862. The Battle of Stones River ensued. It is also known as the Battle of Murfreesboro.



On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention.
Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
